Enough Is Enough?

Posted by Lone Star, 19 May 2012 · 3,776 views

Welcome back dear Readers!

I know it's been far too long since we've spent any quality time together, so I'm going to try to rectify that now...

For those that don't know, I was in the hospital for about a month with diverticulitis/diverticulosis. I presented to the local E/D unable to walk into the triage area because of severe...

The First 'Tube'

Posted by Lone Star, 16 September 2011 · 958 views

Well Dear Reader, I've done it now...

I had an O.R. shift today...and got my very first 'live intubation!!!!

Before you offer up the congratulatory statements and the accolades (not that I'm going to ignore any of them....), I have a confession to make.

For my first few attempts, I panicked and bailed out of the attempt. I don't know...

First O.R. rotation

Posted by Lone Star, 09 September 2011 · 2,356 views

Welcome back Dear Readers!

If you've been following my travails through medic school, y'all know that I've recently begun my clinical rotations as a Paramedic student.

Yesterday was my first rotation in the Operating Room. I was there to get experience in intubation. I've never been treated like a complete idiot before, and I'm not liking the...

Reflections from Medic School

Posted by Lone Star, 16 August 2011 · 792 views

Greetings and salutations Dear Reader!

Monday was the module finals for Airway Management in Paramedic School. I’ve somehow survived another opportunity for the school to involuntarily cull me from the herd. Class size has dropped from 16 students to a mere 10.

Most students appear to be interested in either how fast they can get their Medic...

Welcome back Dear Readers!

I know it's been a while since your last glimpse into The Cluttered Mind of Lone Star, so I'll do my best to pull back the curtain, and catch y'all up on the latest developments...

A bunch of y'all know that I'm currently in Paramedic Class. We recently finished up the first quarter of the year...

What have I gotten myself into?

Posted by Lone Star, 20 February 2011 · 676 views

I recently posted in the ‘status messages’ that I had been accepted into the next medic program that is scheduled to start on 03/24/11. Now that the registration and confirmation process is done, I’ve had time to reflect on just what this all means…

In 1995 I went through EMT-B for the first time. I thought I had the EMS field by the tail because I was...

College Life

Posted by Lone Star, 16 February 2011 · 808 views

Well, I have it completely figured out!

I caught up with my college algebra professor the other day and informed him that I'm filing a lawsuit against the college and that the math department and every instructor I've had since starting college has been personally named in the suit.

The smile fell from his face as the color drained into his...

Militant Separatists or Religious Fantics?

Posted by Lone Star, 29 March 2010 · 629 views

I don't know which aspect of this news stroy scares me more; the militant separatist mentality, or the religious aspect that they seem intent on ramming down our throat.

I realize and recognize the right to free speech. I respect the right to assemble for religious or political reasons. I accept the fact that there are views other than my...

Stupidity Reigns Supreme 5/6

Posted by Lone Star, 25 March 2010 · 323 views

Since my first 'installment' on this topic, I've seen complaints that it was 'too long' to read, so I decided to break it down into smaller bites.

Here's what Mr. Cathcart has to say:

We can jaw about the Administration's new, tax-laden Brahma-bull health- care snort ‘til the cows come home, appropriate since, if the feds...

Stupidity Reigns Supreme

Welcome back dear readers!

I know it's been a while, but for those 'in the know' you are aware that I've had some serious issues that needed dealing with, and unfortunately, my little online corner of the world/soapbox was neglected. I plan to remedy this right now:

While watching the news tonight, I happened to catch an editorial...
