ICE Campaign - "In Case of Emergency" (forwarded to me at work- blimmen good idea)

We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends.

If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?

Hence this " ICE" (In Case of Emergency ) Campaign

The concept of "ICE" is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name "ICE" ( In Case Of Emergency).

The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as "ICE."

For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will make a difference! Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our Mobile phones today!

Selah is walking, has 3 new teeth (11 now) and another on the way. She is getting more interactive and fun all the time.

I am getting well slowly - still have a cough but today was a good day with no painkillers for sore ears/throat. Some friends came to take Selah for a walk for me today and having some space to garden was lovely :)

It's my party and I'll look unimpressed if I want to... She did like the ice-cream really! My sister, Selah's Aunty...

Well it's been a week...Frank was sick on Selah's birthday (vomitting and stomach issues) so it was a busy day for Selah and I getting things done for visitors and going to the zoo. Thanks to Uncle Jakey for running around getting things that I couldn't get...then Tuesday I came down with a flu virus that made me hot-cold and wicked throat/ear pain. I'm still getting over that, and am riding the pain with voltaren. What a terrible winter it's been! Here's a few of Selah on her big day, and a couple from today.

Selah still crawls around but is getting more confident with standing and creeping around furniture. She takes two steps by herself unaided. She'll be off before I know it-where did my baby go?

It's interesting to watch emotional development alongside physical development. Selah loves to cuddle into us and go 'mmmm'. She's now taken to cuddling into anything - her ball, the door, the carpet...
Next week Selah will turn one year old. I'm hoping that she will be well for that and the weather will be nice for a trip to the zoo. Don't worry if you think you should have been invited to a 1yr old birthday party and haven't received an invite-we're not having a party for her until she understands what it's all about ;) Also, it's in the too hard basket for the winter we've had - I can't guarantee we'll all be well - Selah developed a cough/ear infection over the week and her Mum is feeling a bit sleep deprived now. Ahhhh, let's pray next year her immunity will be so great that we have a lot less trips to the Dr/chemist!
