Be careful out there guys. This is my eleventh season in lawn care and last Thursday the heat and humidity was pretty bad and I made it through the day w/o realizing how dehydrated I actually was. Friday morning I was at my first customer at 7:00am and it was nice and cool outside. Before I finished that yard I felt weak all over and then chills. I had another customer on that same street so I was determined to finish it before going home. I barely finished that lawn before I became really cold & nauseous. I drove myself home and checked my temp. 103.5 Went to the E.R. and was there for 7 hours. All they wanted to do was run these major tests on me. Cat Scan, EKG, and then they wanted to check me for Spinal Meningitis. When I told them no on that I had to sign a waiver saying they were not held responsible if I kill over. They did give me an IV of sodium chloride to bring my temp down. They never diagnosed me or gave me recommendations. I had to find everything thing out myself on the net. Saturday I took it easy and was feeling a little better and then Sunday afternoon I had another cycle of high temperatures. Worse than that was a migraine headache that I couldnt shake for anything. I may have to take a whole week off. I have no employees so that means a loss of $$. I'm not worried about that much about the money, my health is more important. I do hope that it doesnt happen again. I've been looking at getting a cooling vest from sportcool.net Bottom line is to STAY HYDRATED.
