Heard today that a former co-worker was stricken at work last week, went into cardiac arrest, and another former co-worker had to give her CPR.
She's now in a coma, unable to breathe on her own (which does not sound good).
Both women are in their mid-30s, and the one taken ill has a five-year-old daughter. I pray that the one who attempted to save her will find the strength to persevere through the horrible experience, regardless of the outcome, without too much trauma. It's hard to imagine what this must have been like.
(I reminded our finance person today that, despite our budget woes, I want our office to have a defibrillabor.)
