Shocking News~

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.)

That is so sad and devastating.
Things like that pull us up short and remind us (at least me) of how fragile life really is.

A defibrillator is a very good idea.

I'll certainly be praying for everyone affected;situations like that remind us just how fragile life is,and that we really don't know what will happen next...

I agree,a defibrillator is an excellent idea,so by all means keep on it! ;)

that's awfully sad. I wish the person a speedy recovery.

I will keep them both in my thoughts. I hope that the one who attempted CPR remembers that she did all she could. That's all that got me through when I was first on the scene of a pickup truck vs pedestrian. I wasn't able to save him, but I did everything I could.

Charlie had told me about this, and I do think things happen for a reason, like why that person was hired and gave her CPR. I sure hope that it all turns out all right. Both are so young. Life is fragile and we must live each day to the fullest as we never know what will happen.
