The strange thing about yesterday is that I had no clue that I was in trouble. I was just out cutting grass away from the air conditioner and the junk growing along the back of the house all of which takes very little energy and time.
When I mow I know when I am starting to have problems so I stop. I only mow a small portion at a time per day. It takes a lot of energy to mow the back because it is on a slight down cline and the ground is not flat.
My dr. told me the ozone was yellow (which I didn't know) and it was in the 90's (which I didn't know cause it didn't feel hot to me :). And under no circumstances was I to do anything in the yard again. Period.
The ER dr. told us they were having a lot of people coming in with heat exhaustion.
I'm sure they were like me, totally unaware until someone intervened.
I had to laugh at myself on the way home from the ER. Just the day before I was taking all these bits of info I have and putting it on the computer so I could find it easily. One of those was for "heat exhaustion".
It's still hard for me to grasp all of this. It's harder still not going out and finishing what I started. But I promised I wouldn't so I won't.
God bless, my friends, and keep an eye on your loved ones as they work in this heat.
