I want to share something with you all.Last January while I was at work a customer collapsed. I was called as I am the first aid attentdant. This man was not conscious and not breathing. Myself and another customer performed CPR for about 20 minutes before the Ambulance arrived. He survived and apparently had a blockage near his heart that caused him to collapse. Ever since then, he and his lovely wife come into my supermarket every Thursday and say hello. They have introduced me to their family and friends (while Im at work) I know them now. Well fairly well. Ive not been to their house or anything. You know what I mean. Last week I commented to my supervisior that I hadnt seen them lately but I had a roster change. I didnt think much of it. Now today I go to work and find out that Frank (the man) passed away on the weekend, at home with his family. I cried. His poor wife. She will be devastated. Im attending the funeral on friday. I will really miss him(he is an old guy, im not being sick or anything) but I've also been feeling that what a waste it was for me to do what I did last year. Do you know what I mean? At least he didnt pass away in a supermarket, I suppose. I really have a lot of respect for doctors and nurses etc I couldnt do that for a job. One incident has effected me enough. What are your thoughts????
