Almost died yesterday....

Recommended Posts

If it wasn't for a good friend being near by and able to get something sweet in my mouth in my mostly unconscious state it would have read in TEENS!!

 

I'm o.k., now. Trying to do too much too fast.

True you were close to dead, if I were you I would carry around a couple of pieces of candy, if you were awake enough to know what was going on to eat them.

 

I remember going through this with my mother, it would drop and she would be what looked like almost passed out, or at least on the way out to not be able to say or do anything. 

 

Well, glad you're still with us. :P

Glad you survived the ordeal.

 

I always suspected that chocolate had medicinal properties.

That would work better than dog food...

Ask almost any woman, and men if they gave chocolate as a present.

And taste better, plus if you stuck dog food in his mouth when he came around if he did we might need to run.

Wilford Brimley is thankful your friend was there for you.  :)

Cake icing in squeeze tubes works well especially if the person is non communicative.  Squeeze some between the cheeks and gum. You always run the risk of hard candy choking the person in need especially at that low a blood sugar reading.

It happened so fast I couldn't even tell the friend what was happening. I was having convulsion-like shakes, diaphoretic, lethargic and nearly unconcious. I just remember that I wanted to go to sleep.

 

She (the friend) got me to the ER, who was already called that I was coming, gave me an amp of D50, 3-4 oz. of orange juice and a meal that had more carbs than the Holley company puts out in a month.

 

Went to my GP doc today to tell them what happened and get my meds adjusted. All this so I can also pass a pre-op exam to get my hand operated on (painful trigger finger).

Is he still alive!?

 

I remember him on that bad 70's TV show, Apples Way.

 

A neighbor of mine was signed up with his endorcer and gave me these a long time ago.

Just think of the weight he would lose, though.

Just had surgery for trigger thumb (same as trigger finger except ... thumb) May 6. Have full range of motion again, but nowhere near the original strength. Still a little uncomfortable, but nothing compared to the pain before the surgery.

I would be happy getting up to about 145-150 lbs. This 125-130 business just ain't cuttin' it.

Fortunately it's on my left hand where I'm right hand dominant (ring finger).

That's pretty light. I've a small frame, and been at 145-150  for the past ten to fifteen years.

For me it's on the dominant hand. You don't realize how much you depend upon your dominant thumb until you can't use it any more. Even opening a tube of toothpaste became an ordeal.

 

I learned to run the computer mouse left-handed, and now that my right hand works again I can't go back.

I'm glad you could see the humor in my post.  I didn't want to make light of your situation, only thought of Wilford with all the diabetes commercials he used to be in.

 

I'm not sure if he's still alive or not.

He is actually still alive.  Reading some of the posts on this forum, I die a little each day.
