    I guess our body just automatically takes over in a crissis situation. We may hut afterwards but you saved someones life and that great. Watch the cough..make sure you didnt get too much smoke in your lungs.
    Great job..what a way to start the day!!!!

    That adrenaline rush does let one do amazing things. I'm so proud of you. I know you are hurting badly now, but you will never regret this act of kindness. Sure hope your neighbor realizes just how special you are!

    You are so special!! Thanks for sharing this amazing feat.

    I ran over to my neighbor's around the other side of the block across from a pond when one of our other neighbors attacked her. I wanted to be sure the cops knew where to go as I was afraid she was going to be hurt. I was a little stiff the next couple of days.

    This morning, I speed walked and jogged for only about 1/8 of a mile. I'm out of shape since the surgery, but I'm wanting to get back into shape.

    Love, Mikie

    I'm so proud of you and I'll bet your neighbors are truly indebted. That was a very brave thing to do. But you're right, you will probably be very sore for a few days, so take care of yourself.

    I was in a fire in 1980 in Detroit where I worked & got the kids I worked with out of it before the structure collapsed. I was in my early 20s & in good shape, no FM-----way different for you, you & hubby should be so proud that you went into "action" mode & helped save a life! Your neighbor will be eternally grateful.

    I never got the smoke smell out of the sweater I was wearing that night, but small price to pay. It even took several showers before I got the smell out of my hair, so be expecting that. Hopefully your lungs will clear out before long.

    Nice to hear a story with such a happy ending! I'm in Kansas City where disaster stories haven't ended so well for many folks this week.....

    Good for you, Dragonball!! You & hubby should both take a bow!!

    very brave. maybe you should get some help for smoke inhalation. A little 02 might help you out there. smoke inhalation is the leading cause of deaths in fires! Although, I am sure you a fine.

    Congratulations, I am sure they can not thank you enough. I just wish we could keep up that energy we used to have without a huge price tag. When my dad was ill & mom just out of bypass. I was staying up night & day. My dad fell, I chased a ambulance blocks to come to correct address, in my p.j`s no less. Did not even give that a thought till people noticed on my trek back. I gave until I collapsed myself took along time mo.s to get out of flare after taking care of them but would not trade 1 second of that time I had with my dad. That adrenalin can be great, anyone have some extra out there?????

    Heroes come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and now we know with Fibro, too! Great Job! It is amazing how we can perform when needed--

    Although my adrenalin story is not as lifesaving--my two year old grand-daugher was screaming, crying, and jumping up and down, a few days ago, about 50 yards away from myself, her parents, and my hubby---guess who made it to her first? Me, Grandma!
    Poor baby was standing in a bed of fire ants, so profuse here in Texas, and her feet and legs were covered. I swooped her off, and was running, knocking off ants right and left. By the time I hit a safe place to sit with her, I was exhausted--proud nonetheless that I could still nurture, like I had with my kids in my younger days. Poor baby had an immediate allergic reaction, with hives and vomiting---so out came the benedryl caps, powder poored into a teaspoon of jelly.

    I am so proud of you and your husband, for taking action! Some don't. You are both heroes, and I commend you highly, as I know your neighbor does, as well. A day well spent.
    Rest up now---and recoup!

    What an uplifting story! Well done, and like the others have said, watch that cough...
    It must feel great though - just goes to show our hearts can transcend these unreliable bodies of ours!

    WOW! Good for you! I live in Rhode Island, the State that suffered the loss of 100 people in a night club fire. So many more lives would have been saved if the folks in the club had responded faster, been more aware. Most initially did not react. We have our hero stories of wonderful folks like you helping others. You are special. Fondly June
