Happy birthday Phil

Phil is in school this week as he continues to upgrade his skills as he works his way towards being a Paramedic.  This is a fairly complex system from my outside view. He has shown such tremendous resolution to keep going but then what would you expect from Philip?!

I get to see Amanda and Carlyle today as I jump over to their little town from Edmonton where I am attending a conference for a couple of days.  I’m very excited about seeing them…and hopefully I’ll see Phil before I head home.

As we celebrate his birthday my memory is stirred to remember all the previous birthdays with cake cupcakes (without icing – he didn’t like sweet things) and friends and bowling or whatever the activity would be.  But activity had to be part of his birthday!

Today we celebrate the wonderful man he has become – a husband, a father, a professional who is anxious to help others.

Happy birthday Philip.

If Rick can do it so can Phil

Phil is about to head off to more school in Alberta to upgrade his paramedic skills…though he sure seems to know a great deal already. In fact if I’m in need of medical care I have learned to shout out PHIL!!! (very loudly)

So in salute to Phil who is continuing to improve his skills and add to his future I thought we should post Rick Mercer’s visit to a Paramedic School. Got get that chicken Phil!
