Good afternoon.I had the biggest scare of my life. Mike was working out in this heat,staining a fence around the gas tank. I checked on him and he said that he want a glass of water and a cookie. I got both.Then he sat down and low and behold he pass out and shaking. I scream Mike,Mike,answer me.I was stupefied. He finally came around.I should have call 911 as this is a first. I could not think fast enough as I was in tear calling his name. Told him going to take you to the ER.want no part of it. Right now he is resting and saying he is feeling good.But he will not tell me if it was bad.This was so scary.Told him to call you doctor to set up an appt. This is the second time that it happen in heat related. He is doing too much told him that he has to stop I have never ever seen him this condition.Pretty scary. lesson learned.Call 911 no matter what the person say. I could have lost him.What would I do?

Call 911 and put cool cloths on his head and wrists, get him into the shade. Wow, how scary that had to have been! You have got to talk some sense into him! Keep giving him water. You should have something like Pedialyte handy, it has electrolytes and minerals you need--well, at least a child needs cos it's a kids' drink--to stay hydrated and balanced. I say that brand because I've read that the sports drinks on the market make a lot of false claims and you may as well be drinking water. If he won't quit working outside get him to agree on 15 minutes outside and 30 minutes inside where it is cool and he has to re-hydrate. He is being totally ridiculous not going to the doctor and staying outside working in this heat. Tell him if he doesn't love you anymore to just leave, don't die. Maybe that will bring him to his senses!

Oh, poor Mike and poor you! He sounds very stubborn, especially if this is the second time it's happened. It may have been heat related, but he should tell his doctor. I would have called 911, but glad he feels better.

Oh, I bet you were so frightened. I probably would have panicked too and perhaps forgotten to call 911 if a loved one began to come around and said they were OK. This is a good lesson for all of us to just call 911 and let the pros handle it even if a person seems fine after the incident.

The fumes from the paint could have overwhelmed him and made him pass out due to the lack of fresh air. He should go to the hospital to make sure. Yes always call 911.

That had to be very scary and I guess you should have called 911. He probably got overheated but why take the chance as it could be anything. Hope he's okay and that's all it was

Oh I'm so sorry that you experienced this awful scare. And poor Mike, I hope that he sees a doctor. I have heard that once you suffer from heat stroke you are more likely to have it again. Tell him to look after himself-and then go and hid his tools so he won't have anything to do when he's outside!

It is pretty frightening when we don't know what's going on. I think Mike should limit his outside time in the high heat for now. I do hope he is feeling better now.
