Scanner Reports 2-6-13
updated: Feb 06, 2013, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Wednesday, Already Humpty Dumpty Day Middle of the Week even I have a wee bit of a Weekend. Wow so many wonderful things were said about me the other day I don't know where to begin. I have been hearing a lot of Medical Emergencies involving difficulty breathing lately and high fevers among other things. It's pretty scary wondering if these Medical emergencies have anything to do with the flu. On Monday early in the morning a call went out for difficulty breathing for one of my neighbors when I got next door he was sitting on the back of his truck. He told me he could not breathe. Engine 2 personnel along with AMR showed up pretty quick and took him away. His son told me later that they think his father might have suffered a heart attack. I found out another friend of mine suffered a stroke last Monday night. When it rains it pours I guess. I have a family member not doing so hot either. I hear those ill medical calls it scares me because I've made it to the age where I'm not in great health either. I know that makes a couple of you happy.

Suicide attempts haven't slowed down either. I thought after the holidays they might, but there are a lot of very depressed people out there with no hope for any future it seems. I've been depressed for a long stretch myself lately. I usually just go through it; it's a way of life for me. I suppose some people might be physically ill and alone and it might be too unbearable for them to go through. I don't know how I would personally feel about that. Either way I cannot judge them for their actions. I have been through many things and have given up many times. Sometimes people have to come back on their own.

Still hearing a lot of "Fall Victim Head Injuries" in the nursing and retirement homes - more than usual. Sad when folks get older and cannot defend themselves. I'm sure not all the falls are abuse as not all the falls are accidents either. Some Squatters out there. Still would be hard to be homeless and know about a vacant home and not enter it illegally even with the threat of going to jail. Especially if you had a friend with you and you wanted to keep them safe. It could get pretty dangerous out on our streets at night, not to mention the cold.
