    1-where else would you meet someone with a GI Joe head in their bum?
    2-you will never work with a group of people who are so team-work oriented. In reality, your safety and well being are in their hands. I know that the nuts I work with are like second family to me. I love those goofs.
    3-Never the same thing every day. It always changes. Slow and sluggish one minute, and them BAM! Someone is looking to you to get their loved one to breathe again.
    4-You can make an immediate difference in someones life.
    All in all, you have some really crappy days. But that one time that I saw a beautiful 3 yr old that we had coded when she was 6 mos (SIDS) happy and healthy, made all of the bad days seem like childs play.


    It's a great choice!
