A really nice email

Today I was going to write about my kids, but then I received this email which I thought was much more important to share:

Hi, Gail,

Just thought you'd find this interesting...

I took your CPR and FA classes in Sept....and in October my husband's life was saved by a bystander who knew CPR (I, of course, wasn't thinking straight, and it never occurred to me that it was a CPR-type situation). The bystander did CPR for about 7 minutes until the ambulance arrived. The EMTs shocked him twice before getting him on the ambulance. It was his heart. He's now fine!

You who are and train lifesaving techniques are truly appreciated!!


This is why I teach CPR and I love to hear that it is used successfully! I am so thankful that her husband is fine and feel honored that several months later she sent this wonderful email.

Take care,



  1. Gail - You save lives! Keep on doing all you do to help and train others!!!
    Standing ovation to YOU!

  2. Gail, I'm always grateful there are people like you around. Keep up the great work! You do make a difference!
