I've raised four kids: two girls, two boys. Total number of trips to the emergency room: 7.
Combined number of stitches, staples, and casts: 11. Thankfully, I was able to obtain timely
medical care and now all of their breaks and scrapes have healed. But what if I had faced a life
threatening emergency? What if I hadn't known what to do? What if there had been a delay
in obtaining medical care, something as common as rush hour traffic? What if my child had stopped
breathing and the situation was critical? What would I have done?
There are few skills that are as easy to learn, while also bearing life-saving potential,
as CPR. What would you do if someone were choking, drowning or in an accident? It's quite simple: Knowing how to perform CPR can help
you save the life of your child or loved one.
It doesn't take long, doesn't cost much and means all the difference between being able
to act fast or just standing helplessly by. Which would you want for your child?
