So, you're probably tired of hearing me whine about the gestational diabetes, huh? Today I'll give you a story instead.
I was too rushed to pack a good lunch today (it takes forever to add up all the carbs and sort out portion sizes) so I decided to get a salad at the grocery store. While I was waiting in line the old lady in front of me blacked out. I saw her start to sway and then her knees buckled. I grabbed her right under the arms before she hit the floor. It was a good thing I was there or she would have likely hit her head on the shelving or the floor. I knelt there on the floor holding her head for about 5-6 minutes before she was able to get up into a wheelchair the manager brought over.
She ended up saying she was fine but had some slurred speech. I strongly encouraged her to go to the hospital, but I don't know if she will. The manager took care of her then came and asked me if I was ok. I twinged my back a little, but that's to be expected. I'll be fine but he kept asking me if I wanted an ambulance. It was quite exciting!
