The triage nurse at ECMC had some fun with me and another FF that hurt his elbow. As she was taking our vitals she stops and says. " now let me get this straight, you hurt your elbow? and you hurt you groin? You wanna tell me how you really got hurt? I promise I won't tell."
Awe that sucks JJ.

It's funny, as i told you before, my uncle is a Buffalo FF, and i've gone to his firehouse a couple times to visit. I see the relaxing and easy time they have while getting paid.

But i also know the balls to the wall kinda dedication, training, and professionalism most of you do when the bell rings! It's something i greatly admire and respect. I hope your hernia isn't not too serious. No surgery No surgery!
