last night we had some friends come over and suddenly our next store neighbor little girl came rushing in our house crying that her mom was on the floor and she was not responding, we went over there and she had started talking some and we called 911 and it took them alittle while and i kept her talking and so did my husband, i tried to make her daughter feel better poor thing was so scared, while they ended up airlifting her out due to where we live in the country, the thing that was strange is that we were supposed to go Houston to a friends house warming party but got short on money, so we weren't able to go, if we wouldn't been there she would have died , the paramedics told us another few minutes and she would had died because her heart wasn't getting the right electric rhythm to it , her heart rate they said was 25 and it needed to be over 50, when she got to the hospital they put a temporary pace maker in and in a few days there going to put a permanent one in, this was a time it was good to be broke, i dont know what her little girl would have done if she lost her, and boy did i have the worst panic attack, i was trying to keep myself calm for her but i was so scared, my heart felt like it was coming out. i found out today she is doing good i just so happy she is o.k.

What a blessing that you all were there for her. It is so hard to wonder why bad things happen to us, but I think you're right: you were going to be needed there, for your neighbor, last night, and if all had gone according to your own plans and hopes, you wouldn't have been. Thank God you were able to help.

A huge congratulations to you for helping out while having a panic attack yourself! That's so wonderful, that you were able to keep functioning in spite of how you were feeling for yourself.

Boatloads of hugs to you, my sweet friend,

I believe everything happens for a reason, fate and destiny I guess. That is wonderful, great news about your neighbour recovering and the daughter coming to you and knowing when to get help from you. If you are anything like me you could play the whole nights event over and over in your head looking for what if's and how comes? Dont look to deep...Sometimes somethings just cant be explained! Job well done! gillxx

Don't do them old "what if" thoughts, because you should be very proud of yourself for handling the situation so great! Like the paramedics told you both, you saved her life and there is no greater feeling than that :) It is easy to feel panic in situations like this and instead of letting it get to you, that adrenaline rush was used for something very postive :) Take care of yourself and I hope you get some relaxation in.
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)
