Town emergency personnel save life

I knew something was wrong,

After awakening in the night,

When I lost my balance,

Trying to turn on the light,

My speech was not right, from previous page

When I tried to talk,

I fell to the floor,

When I tried to walk,

I called for help, told Christine and Austin the way I felt,

We met the rescue at the first station,

And proceed to the hospital with no hesitation,

The rescue crew knew just what to do,

Traveling the highway,

It was like we flew,

Arrived at the hospital,

Just in time,

A life was saved,

It was mine,

I am now recovering from a confi rmed stroke,

To be discharged in a couple of weeks I hope,

Thanks to Dr. Joe England and his professional rehabilitation staff,

Now recovering and home at last.

Also, thanks to the Jamestown EMS, the Jamestown Fire Department and the Jamestown Police Department.
