Kudos to the 911 team

Recently, at my acupuncture office, a gentleman broke out in a profuse sweat and seemed disoriented on my treatment table. Although I suspected low blood sugar was the cause, I was concerned that he might be having a coronary event, so before I checked his blood sugar, not wanting to lose any time at all, I called 911.

After the call, I checked his blood sugar, and indeed, he was hypoglycemic. I gave him some juice and he was soon restored.

The 911 call had gone through, and since they were almost at my office, they came to evaluate. What a wonderful group of confident and caring guys. I feel lucky to live in a town where “help is just a phone call away!” Keep up the great work you are doing in our community, thank you so much.
