Hopefully you are relaxing by a body of water, with a cabana boy bringing you mojitos and waving palm leaves over you.
We are in our own kind of paradise, cheering on our hometown baseball team.
Where ever this holiday is taking you, I hope it is full of laughs….the kind that make your belly hurt. The kind that leak out a little snort-chuckle. The kind that might-maybe make you drool a little. Those are the best kind.
Today’s MMM Challenge is a little less laughtastic, and a little more life-saving. Don’t want to scare you but 95% of sudden cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital, and after only 4-6 minutes the victim will experience brain death. Now imagine if that is your spouse, or dad, or child. Sorry I said I didn’t want to scare you. Puppies and rainbows, and colorful unicorns. Better?
So I want you to take a very simple step, a class that could save a life.
I got CPR certified about a month ago, the whole class only took a couple of hours and it was a workout. Seriously, I worked up a sweat trying to bring that dummy back to life. If nothing else, just do it to burn calories. Kidding of course, but CPR was a lot harder than Wendy Peffercorn made it look.
Apparently, they have recently changed the technique so if you haven’t been in a while you should get on that. Call your local hospital to find a class, and bring a friend. I mean what if it is you that needs CPR, right?
If you aren’t convinced already, I will leave you with this nugget of information…CPR can double a victim’s chance of survival. Double it.
