Labor Day Weekend

I thought Labor Day weekend was going to be just another weekend. Shane was up to Wyoming to scout for his deer hunt. Brylee was going with grandma and grandpa cause it was mom's weekend to work. Thas is exactly what happened Friday and Saturday. Sunday rolled around and Shane came home. We decided to go spend the night camping with Family up on Skyline Drive. Spend some time with Brylee before mom had to go back to work Monday night.
After church, we drove up to skyline. We had been there for about an hour when my mom came running to the trailing yelling Gary! Shane!! some has rolled a razor and is hurt. We found out a young man was a little more than hurt. The razor had landed on his chest and when we finally got him out from underneath, the man wasn't breathing and didn't have a pulse. Gary did mouth to mouth and I did chest compression. Shane was calling to get life light. We did CPR for an hour before life light finally came. I felt helpless, I couldn't help this man cause I didn't have any medical equipment like I do in the hospital. Life light did finally get a soft pulse and 84% O2 saturation. Then next day we found out from the family that the man has his eyes open, breathing on his own, but there was no brain activity. To this day I can still see this man's face and bruised chest.
I thought I would never have to do CPR outside of the hospital. It was an experience I will never forget.
It made me realize how fragile life can be, and never take for family for granite. I love my family so much!!!!
