Oh! I forgot to tell you! I believe I had a life saving moment today! Makes me smile just thinking about it. A patient was in yesterday (one of our favorites) and diagnosed with Pneumonia. He also has asthma, so pneumonia is def not good for him. Anyhoo, he showed up again today for a antibiotic shot (when they get this they have to come in several days in a row) and I noticed him sitting in the waiting room and breathing funny and looking gray, so I took him in the back right away, notified the doc who took one look at him and had the nurse call 911. His O2 level was down to 43%!! We gave him O2 and a breathing treatment until the ambulance showed up. I probably didn't actually save his life, but I like to think I did.
