Ill Person

One of the calls that I hate the most is the call for an ill person. Most of the time they are just that, sick. They're not dying, no pneumonia, no heart attack. They just have a cold. We got a call just like this the other day. The elderly woman was complaining that she was nauseous all morning and that she still didn't feel well. She told us that she wanted to go to the ER so that they could give her some fluids. She was feeling dehydrated. I really wanted to give her a glass of water and tell her to take two Aspirin.

I've heard that a dog will start to take on the qualities of its owner over time. This lady had a Cocker Spaniel that was missing an ear and very sickly. We all thought, "like owner like pet."
