TOTD: Thankfully, no. Many years ago, my father collapsed at home and died of a heart attack, but I was away at college. My mother knew no CPR and called the emergency numbers at the time. When I received her call, he wasn't dead and I immediately drove the 90 miles to Jacksonville, uncertain of his condition (pre-cell phones). He was dead by the time I started the drive. I had been trained in CPR, so I've never been sure if I could have altered his destiny had I been there.

That sucks,CW.:( What a thing to have on your mind all these years.
