If he hasn't checked in yet - Boomer was on honor guard at a funeral and became a bit overheated.
He text me from the ER, and seems to be fine after recovering from either heat exhaustion or heat stroke. (not sure what the diff is)
Told him I was NOT giving him mouth to mouth no matter what his problem was...

oh crud! I'm glad he's o.k., but that's scary!
I wouldn't expect him to check in. He's going to need to rest for a while.

Sure glad boomer is doing okay...and he got to the hospital before it became too severe.
He probably had heat exhaustion...heat stroke is very severe and serious requiring hospitalization.

I dont think you got ANYTHING TO WORRY about Muffy - you ain't kissin me and I aint kissin you. Done deal!!!
I just got back from the hospital. I have a heart monitor to wear for the next two days - fun...NOT! I was well into heat exhaustion, and starting to approach heat stroke - but no one at the funeral bothered to take my pulse, so there wasnt really a baseline to go from. I had been fine all morning, making sure I rehydrated the whole shebang. Had some peanut butter toast, took two quarts of ice water, and drannk a couple bottles of watter during the funeral. The problem was we were all almost totally exposed to the heat and the humidity, and the schedule we HAD planned on drug on and on and on. We were riding in formation to the cemetary, and thats when I could feel my heart beating hard. By the time we got in our flag line to shield the family from those would be vermin, my heart rate was up over 140 and climbing, and then I started getting dizzy - but fortunately I recognized the symptoms and waved to a couple of the senior riding captains for help. By the time I got to the hospital my rate was down to 111, but the BP was up and down, and I was still seriously dehydrated. I am pretty worn out - never had that happen before, and as a land surveyor I have worked in far hotter conditions, and came home to grilling detail and still had time for a few beers. The doc took an ekg and did see some irregularities in the heart beat, hence partly why I have a monitor. He thinks I am....wait....stressed out? Thinks maybe its time to stop working two jobs and relax a bit. He said a bunch of other stuff, but I guess now that wife and girls are all upset, I may have to reconsider some activities outdoors. Didnt Bubba just talk about a frying pan? Thats about how it felt, and it wasnt even 112!
Now - in my boredom at the hospital - I just couldnt resist having a LITTLE fun.
Nurses sometimes just dont have any sense of humor!

I'm glad to see that you're ok Boomer!
RE: The Weather Thread - nettiesaur - 07-18-2011 06:38 PM
So am I. Oh and nurses have a sense of humor, just outside of the patient's room!
RE: The Weather Thread - Gungawoman - 07-18-2011 06:39 PM
Boomer, glad to hear you're feeling better and caught yourself before it got REALLY bad. Are they going to operate for that growth on your forehead?
RE: The Weather Thread - Bageleth - 07-18-2011 06:40 PM
The safest place to see a nurse's sense of humor, may be outside of the hospital
RE: The Weather Thread - RN-PRN - 07-18-2011 06:42 PM
We have a sense of humor and yes we do mess with the patients if they have a great sense of humor and obviously Boomer does!!
RE: The Weather Thread - Boomer - 07-18-2011 07:20 PM
Thanks folks! If I know things are ok I love to mess with nurses and doctors. Just so happens the doctor I had was someone I did a property survey for back in 2004 and recognized me....then asked me what would possess me to be in this heat! The nurses were great! Even the one who started my IV. All nurses love hugs, and she gave me a couple on her way out tonight. My aunt is the same way....but cross her just once......SLAP!
My wife who has a worse sense of humor thought the patch should go somewhere else where it might do a little more GOOD, but I still say its physically impossible to stick that thing on my spleen!
