My husband had a heat stroke Thursday

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
and I have been taking care of him since then..he went back to work for the first time today since the event that happened then....
This my reasoning for not being around much for the past few days....my life is very very busy right now, and I am just so thankful that he is ok...his left arm is temporarily paralized due to the trauma, he went in yesterday for an ER follow up, and they took some blood, and they will know for sure if this is a temporary or permanent thing with his arm....it was soo scary you all....I got there after the worst happened..he had passed out a couple times, and one of his co-workers, carried him in the ER....he had no control over his upper part of his body...they had to give him a muscle relaxer for this, and I got there shortly after that, and after about an hour, it started to wear off, and his arms started going everywhere once again...they had to give him another dose of muscle relaxer( nubaine I do believe is what it was, and it hasn't happened again since...they released him around 9:00 that night after being there since 4:00...I know that was the scariest thing I have ever seen you all...I just know i am thankful to have my husband here today..I thought I was going to lose him..but so far he is doing well since then.......just say a prayer that he continues to get better each day please?...thanks....

He has an appointment to see a neurologist on the 25th, for his arm...he had no control over his upper body Thursday, and we seem to think it could just be something temporarily, but we don't know for sure yet...I am hoping and praying it isn't anything too serious and will just go away eventually......

Kathy, we hope it's just temporary too!!!

That IS wayyyy scary. I have issues with the heat (I get heat rashes all the time and often have to lie down in a cool dark room to recover). Your hubby will now too. Be very careful with him.

Kathy, I hope he makes a full recovery. That is very scary, I'll be thinking of you and your family.

I hope your husband is doing well.
That must have been so very frighting!!. I do not do well in the heat and have had heat exhaustion once, it was awful.
I am sending good thoughts and prayers your way.
