I posted this in another thread,
but I think it is worthy of it's own as well.
Last year, an old man had a heart attack in my building and as they were wheeling him out we made eye contact ( he had hit his head and was bleeding)
and then they took him to the hospital where he died.
Later that afternoon I had to remove a bat from the entryway of our building. When I touched the bat I felt a connection to the old man who just
died.....hard to explain, it was almost like he was the bat trying to come home, or that was the thought in my mind at the time.
Eventually I had to go into his apartment and clean up what the next of kin missed when they cleaned his apartment. (They did a wonderful job of
There was some blood that was missed, and I cleaned it up.
(not sure if the blood is important or not)
Today, I get a call on my radio that there was a bat in an apartment and I had to go remove it. I grabbed it with leather gloves and then I let it go
out the _ It flew away, but I had a weird feeling when touched it...I still can't place what the feeling was, just unusual. Very subtle.
About half an hour after I remove this bat I hear on my walkie talkie that my co worker is calling an ambulance, and saying that we have an injury on
the property. Blood everywhere..... So I head over to the building ASAP, and the ambulance is already there, paramedics trying to stop the bleeding on
an elderly woman who was on blood thinners and I am guessing diabetic from the look of the hole in her leg that wouldn't stop bleeding.
They rushed her off to the hospital and my co worker and I cleaned up all of the blood in the entry way of the building......It is unknown now what
her status is, I hope she is ok.
I have only had to catch 2 bats ever in this building, both times was during a point when someone was either dying or having a life threatening
condition....or maybe it is because I will clean up their blood later....strange...bats..........
