Morning all, Well I did manage to drag my sorry carcass out of bed and get there, I was a bit late, 6-7 mins which isn't bad for me seeing as I did have a nice relaxing cup of Coffee to get me started (hence why I was late). The course as it always does, new thing = Nervous, New building = Unfamiliar and lastly Dif folks = Severely anxious... Sigh! Small group of folks, 5 in total plus the trainer who is BRILL!! Country lass, very easy to get on with. With my size and knee issues, did confess that I may have a prob with CPR on the ground regarding Balance ( don't want to squish / flatten folks by falling on them), so I have to practice that over and over until I get it and can do the 3 mins solid CPR. Side Note: where can I get new knees with inbuilt cushions??? Well it's now the second day, first one done so I can get an Appointed Persons certificate the now and call it a day at that... BUT!! here I go with "What If"! so going to stick with it!!! But First COFFEE!! Toast!!! then READ BOOK!!! Hugz to all that want em.

Going to re-go through the book and my notes as well, bandages am comfy with, will really need to go over signs and symptoms again. Will know by just past lunchtime 1pm ish.

Update, second day.... Our 5 has became 4. The lass became ill and is going to re-do the course next week. Managed the CPR part on both sides, (need to be able to do this incase the casualty is in an awkward place or position) Was able to read most of the book last night afore I fell in a heap and went to bed early... sigh. Now its morning on the third day, am more comfy again, but a lot to get thru today, so time for another cuppa afore I head out. Will give ye all an update after the course assessment on Thursday. Hugz

I'm thinking in those first 6-7 minutes you missed, you could have just done the Heimlich Maneuver and eliminated the need to learn CPR in the first place! (LOL!--snicker, snicker!) Best Wishes--True
