Recently I was at small gathering of people to celebrate a birthday. Across the table from me was a man in our community who collects and sells scrap metal.

He doesn't pay for anything he takes. He looks…Continue

He was about halfway through his program which means he had just enough information to be dangerous. We responded to a call on someone having trouble breathing. As we walked in the patient’s daughter informed us that her mom was on hospice and would be dead any day. As she watched life slip away she panicked. The hospice company did a poor job preparing her and she could not take things…Continue
