Done (sort of)

Written final in my EMT class last night. The look on the faces around me ranged from relief to fear to joy. I did fine (87%), though my mind was elsewhere. The evaluations for the class are over. One last meeting tonight to practice for the state practical Sat., then a couple of week wait for the state written. I am sure my wife won't know what to do having me around some evenings.

We've come so far, yet yesterday's call taught me I am not yet prepared to deal with the human side of working some types of calls. I can't stop thinking about the patient and her family.
