I am now officially ACLS certified

I made 100%. Thanks for your prayers. It was really not an easy course.

You know how in the movies you will see someone in cardiac arrest with a flat line and the actors will defibrillate the patient? Well guess what? That is the absolute opposite of what a person is supposed to do. The object of defibrillation is to reboot the computer of the heart so to speak. IOW, you are stopping the heart on purpose to hopefully get it firing properly again. So if a person has a flat line, they are already in that state. Then they pump the person full of drugs and do vigorous CPR. It was quite educational. I learned so much.

I must say that if anyone does not believe in God after taking that course, I would be amazed. The heart is such an amazing little machine. When it doesn't conduct electricity properly, the person is in a heap big trouble. The majority of people who lose their ability to pump their heart properly in some of these more life threatening situations like ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation do not recover.

Anyway, thank you for your prayers!! I will now go tomorrow to this interview with one more credential.

In His Love,
