Friday Night Blogging - Low Blood Sugar Edition

Meet Matt Medic (Yes, his real name. Check out Wiki if you don't believe me! He's there.) :
Yes, folks, it's blurry. My BGL took a nose dive this afternoon, blame it on that.

Matt Medic was one of my Son's favorite toys, once upon a time, and by extension, is now my Daughter's favorite.

Matt is hardcore. Check out his awesomeness...
And like James Bond, he has the BEST toys.
I mean CLEARLY he is the ultimate in pre-hospital care! He comes equipped with (starting from approximately 8 o'clock):

Super righteous torpedo like IO device. You can't tell me that's not impressive!

At about 1:00 we have the obligatory sunglasses. Okay, so Matt's aren't all that cool, but they are necessary.

At approximately 2:00 we have the ultimate in stethoscopes. The Littmann Cardio 8000. So effective it can hear into the future! Perfect for that medic who has been subjected to the noise from sirens and of course loud extrication equipment. Will your patient tank twenty minutes into that transport? With the Littmann Cardio 8000 you'll know before your patient does.

And finally, the Coup de grĂ¢ce of EMS equipment, the Lifepak 360. Comes complete with diamond plating (never underestimate the healing qualities of diamond plating!), the ability to navigate through any natural disaster (hurricane, earthquake, firestorm as evidenced by the arrows). Unfortunately it's still somewhat unreliable as far as BP's go, and God help you if you don't bring fifty extra batteries with you.

Good LORD check out the size of his feet!

Okay, I'm not right, I've admitted it. My apologies.

He comes with a buddy, btw...

His name is Jake Justice. I'm sure once upon a time he came with fun toys, but after years of... work, he's lost them. Hopefully they'll reappear as I dig through Future Cardiologist's toy box.

Like I said, I'm not right.

Ah, the Rescue Heroes. We've only got 17 bazillion VHS tapes at Casa del G. dealing with their exploits.

Funny, isn't it, that none of the episodes ever dealt with the rampant steroid abuse that must have occured to result in such grossly proportioned extremities...

I found one of those sitting on my desk one day when I got to work. Don't tell, but the fine folks of Fishcer Price really meant to call him 'MedicMatthew' ;)

OK, maybe it's the concussion talking or maybe I'm just not right either, but for an action figure, Matt Medic is kinda hot....

LOL :o)

Matt Medic is actually the replacement for the original medic who was named Perry. Somewhere in the fog of my brain I think there may even be an episode dealing with the brothers and why Perry left. We have several of each still I think.
