Tomorrow Today

So how did my day turn out?


I am excited to go to work tomorrow on the ambulance. No, there is nothing special going on tomorrow that it isn’t going on any other day. I am just looking forward to going to work. The last three days I have been at work on my clinic coordinator job, reading other responders’s run forms, reading research papers, and putting together CMEs (which included getting to hear an awesome lecture by one our cardiologists about ECG interpretation). Tomorrow is my turn to play paramedic again, and I love being a paramedic.
