Supportive Hands and Voices

supportive hands and voices

“It was hard to tell the difference between the fireworks in the neighborhood and the flashing lights of the approaching rescue squad.”

We had just finished dinner.  The kids were scrambling to find shoes and run outside for the start of sparklers and the highly anticipated fireworks.  It all changed in an instant.  I will never forget the cry from my sister’s voice, “Call 911, Devin’s having a seizure.”

Supportive Hands and Voices

On Our Worst Days

The call went out that requested a Volunteer Firefighter/EMT leave their family to assist mine.  It was hard to tell the difference between the flashing lights of the rescue squad and the neighborhood fireworks.

I will never forget the patience and care of the paramedic as he attended to Devin. I will never forget those who came on the call who were concerned about everyone, even Devin’s grandma who was crying with fear.  I will never forget those who held my sister’s hand as her son was having a seizure.  The 4th of July started like many but ended like one I never want to repeat.

Supportive Hands and Voices
I am grateful for the supportive hands and voices in our time of need. From the supportive voice of the 911 Operator, to the supportive hands that carried Devin to the rescue squad, and for the supportive voices in the Emergency Room. – Jackie S. Devins Aunt.
