Emergency ad 5 2

The time to prepare for an emergency is not when you’re faced with one.

I was faced with a life threatening medical emergency for my Mother that came on quickly and suddenly that I was unprepared for.  She called me and told me she didn’t feel well; I went to her house and I called 911.  I thought all I needed to do was turn on the outside porch light, stay with her to make sure she stayed awake and wait for the ambulance to arrive.  Boy, was I wrong!  I was supposed to know her medical history; her prescriptions; her dosages; why she was taking them; her past surgeries, her chronic illness; her allergies; medical procedure dates; doctor contact information; if she was a DNR or an organ donor.  The truth was, I couldn’t answer any medical questions regarding her health, her prescriptions or her medical history – I even got her birth-date wrong.  I didn’t even know if she wore dentures.  The feeling of helplessness was overwhelming.  Everything happened so fast.  I was unprepared and uninformed.  I was my Mother’s “emergency contact person”, and I was no help at all.

I vowed to never be in that situation again.  I was faced with a problem and I wanted to create a solution that was easy to use, easy to understand, easy to afford and easy to manage.  MIMI – My Instant Medical Information was the answer.  My Mother survived her medical emergency and I’m happy to say MIMI is our family’s health advocate.

I would rather have MIMI and not need it than to need MIMI and not have it.
