    Hi all! I just wanted to let you know that as of next Thursday I will be a certified EMT! It just goes to show that if you put your mind to it you can do anything. I had many people including my cardiologist doubtful that I would make it through this semester. At times I was about to give up especially after my sugery. I was so sore and the last thing I wanted to do was ride on an ambulance for 14 hours I did tough it out with encouragement from my best friend John who is like a father to me. I would not have been able to do this without all of the love and support that I have gotten of my family at Disney and Lisa who led me on the right track.

    Thank you for letting me get my life back!

    Mary S.

    See what can be accomplished when you put your mind to it. I told the EMTs in the ambulance Nov. 16 that all of them are over worked and underpaid. Hear is a big THANK-YOU for the work that you have done and a prayer to help you continue to do it for as long as you want to.

    Mary, Congratulations! So happy for you, and a big "THANK YOU" (I think it's ok to yell this one) to all the EMS people out there for all of us. Linda
