Three shots of my main desk .... really does need a tidy up, but that is my mission for this coming weekend.
Centre.... the remnants of the card making
Right ... general dumping ground
We had a big celebration of life party in the evening and then drove back home on Sunday! A very tiring, and emotional day, but a really good event to promote the need for people to learn CPR and for defibrillators to be more widely available.
The poor survival rate in the UK is shocking (pardon the pun). Only 8% of the 30,000 people who have a sudden cardiac arrest outside of hospital every year, will survive. That's 2,400 ... the other 27,600 don't make it! A big misconception is that heart attack and cardiac arrest are the same thing. Heart attack is 'plumbing' and sometimes caused by blockages. Cardiac arrest is 'electrical' and the heart stops beating. Unless CPR is performed and the heart shocked back into rhythm, then the result is death. I know how lucky I am to be one of the 8%, thanks to Mr M and his CPR skills!
Ok lecture over (can you tell I feel strongly about this? Lol). If you read to the end then thank you. Have a lovely week, and I shall do my visiting after work. Heather x
