I was close to drowning due to foolish water safety on Kee Beach, I had taken in a snorkel full of water due to playing with an underwater camera and then being unable to touch bottom I was not able to... more swim regularly due to the camera on my right wrist and no flippers. I was hauled out by my daughter and we decided that it would be a great idea to have the lifeguards check me out, they were very effective and took most of my history and kept me on oxygen for awhile and took my blood pressure a number of times, and they were surprised that I knew so much about my medication and the number of different kinds of drugs I take . Man did speed up I could hear tower on the radio to both the fire EMTs and the ambulance is strange to hear yourself being talked about in the third person. The ambulance crew was very thorough and encouraged me to go with them to Wilcox and I chose not to ! Is it good to know that there is an wonderful hospital that can be in a short distance to the favorite place that we like to vacation? You bet! I was also lucky that one of the Young Doctors who knew the Ambulance Crew was on the beach and was quietly letting the Ambrosius, firemen EMTs and Lifeguards know that he was available if. Needed. Another reason to va
From the front desk to everyone who handled my emergency, it was all professional and caring and properly handled.
They knew how to take care of a person in great pain.
Thank you everyone.... more You made it work.
