Friday Help
Wednesday, November 6, 2013 • Posted November 6, 2013

Dear Gerry:

During our game against Bracketville on Friday night I became dizzy and somewhat disoriented. At halftime I tried to stand and could not. Many people were helpful and concerned for my welfare, especially when I had to lean against my husband to be able to stand upright without falling.

Some of those people I know, but there are some whose names I don’t know. Debbie Owens was sitting behind me and offered assistance. There was also another lady close by who went to get some water. I’m sorry I don’t know her name. (If you are reading this, next time we see each other, tell me your name! O.K?). Several others showed concern and asked if they could help. Thank you, thank you.

Suddenly two EMT’s appeared like angels and both helped me to the ambulance where they were cheerful, helpful and knowledgeable. They could not tell me who alerted them or how they knew exactly where I was. Thank you to that person as well. The medics were: Wayne Flint, Elba Nail, his son Josh and Tanner Brown. My husband Ken told me that Elaine O’Neil and Sam and Maribelle Hoerster were among those asking after me.

And thank you to Chris Habecker, our principal, who came to the ambulance and spoke to my husband. I was transported to Hill Country Memorial where I was also treated by a cheerful staff who were also over-the-top helpful. It turned out that nothing life-threatening was wrong. I have vertigo and was given meds to correct the situation. This event was a first for me, but what I am taking from this is the care and nurture of those around us when things started to go topsy-turvy.
