Hello and thanks for allowing me to come aboard here. This forum was recommended to me by a friend who is already a member here, and I'm confident it will be all he says that it is in a very good way. I pledge to do my best to always be a credit to this forum remembering that I'm a guest and will govern myself accordingly.
I was a Registered Nurse working in various nursing fields through many years as well as a Paramedic for about 7 of those same years in which I worked on a busy ambulance service owned by the large local hospital but also remained an RN. Hope we have some other folks here from the health care delivery system.
After some major heart surgery and all those other surgeries/injuries, and on the advice/insistence of my doctors, I finally gave it up and had to retire due to disability and go "out to pasture."
I'm one of the older guys at age 61, very happily married to the same angel almost 40 years. We had a son who passed from this life at age 29 a little more than 2 years back from illnesses related to injuries.
I've been hunting, shooting, carrying defensive handguns for more than 40 years so hope to add something to this forum. All very best wishes to all here. Most respectfully,
Welcome from Memphis.
