CPR certified.

It's been a little crazy lately (sorry for some missing posts), and yesterday I was just worn out so
wasn't able to get a post ready. Yesterday Nicole and I went and took a CPR class. It's a great life skill and I feel more confident having it under my belt. I honestly think it's something that everyone
should be required to take. I hope to never have to use it, but with friends having babies, working in a hospital, and just life in general I am glad to have this knowledge if I'm ever in the situation where it's needed. I just hope and pray that if faced with a situation that I would step up and act.

One thing I've always been scared of is attempting CPR and then they (or their family) suing me. But under the Good Samaritan Act, I should be covered. Basically it's there so we can give CPR without fear of legal action. If you are truly acting as a "good Samaritan", basically meaning you are trying to help the person out of kindness (not reward) and take reasonable actions you shouldn't be at risk.

I hope you all will take the time to look into taking a class. It's a good life skill to have and who knows when it will come in handy. YOU might just be able to save some one's life one day.
