When I got to work this morning my apprentice broke down in tears telling me sorry for not coming in (I'm quite strict about time keeping) but his
brother has been diagnosed with leukaemia
OK we'll deal with that over the coming months, he knows his job is safe and seems reasonably perky knowing we are all 100% there for him.
A colleague cuts off half a finger, cue Cody company medic, Ice ......... check...........container.........check.......sterile bandage to wrap around
finger and now loose appendage......check

Tea break I go onto ATS of course and facebook to catch up with what my kids are doing
I'm faced with this
That's my ex wife in hospital after being bitten by a poisonous snake in Israel, not only that but she is in the news being interviewed about it
Link to the video
The highlights translated
"It was 4:30 AM when a snake got onto my leg,I awoke and grabbed it, it bit my hand, I didn't realise at first it was snake but when I saw my finger
and the signs,and the blood I realised it was a snake."
Then my daughter speaks
"Mum came into my room gave me the phone and asked me to call the paramedic, I was in shock I didn't know had happened, I got up saw the snake bites
called him to come, she tried to reassure us that all will be OK, and that I should arrange everything (at home)"
"Within 25 minutes I could hardly breathe, I knew I had to get to hospital as fast as possible so they could treat me"
Then she talks to the doctor
"I bet I'm not the first case this summer huh"
The doctor goes on to explain that she arrived in a "difficult situation" with low blood pressure and breathing difficulties, not knowing which
snake had bitten her they made a judgement based on amongst other things geographical location and gave her serum for a viper.
Of course I just explained to my boss that I have to run and check all is well with the kids and whether or not I should book a flight to be there for
support or not
It is now 13:12
The calls have been made and everything is sorted out, the kids are fine and the ex will live
I need a drink \_/
For those of you interested the snake is in shock from meeting the ex but should pull through
