I may have said this before but when I was a kid my grandmother did all the “doctoring” for us, unless we needed surgery, stitches, or vaccinations. My guess is she’d of done the stitches too if my mother let her. She had grown up on a remote farm in the Gaspe part of Quebec where there wouldn’t have been a real doctor. I wish I had known how valuable it could have been to learn from her, but I was only 19 when she died and such things never occurred to me back then.
Tukie, a nurse/PA/EMT background will make you a valued member of any community you find yourself in come a post-SHTF era.
