3.5 miles of pavement and gravel pushing the stroller on a roundabout route to pick the older boys up from school.

I did that once in the shower after soaking in the Banff Hot Springs. It’s no fun at all…Don’t forget to hydrate!
Here’s my view for the past few hours:
View attachment 1714292
I took today off from running and felt fine this morning. I was working from home and sitting on the couch in my den. Around 11:45 a.m. I was going to heat up the oven to make some lunch for me and my kids and I got up to head out to the kitchen. I can remember seeing my wife in the hallway and then the next thing I know I’m waking up flat on my back on the floor of the den wondering how I got there and my wife is running in yelling for our oldest to bring her phone. I somehow had passed out and hit the deck.
My wife called 911 and within 90 seconds the paramedics were there (followed by three fire trucks, two police cars from our community, one from the city next door, and my doctor neighbor who saw all the commotion and was concerned… it must have been a slow day for the emergency folks). I was still sort of disoriented and out of it but otherwise alert. My wife told me and the paramedics that she saw me coming out of the den and then My eyes rolled back and closed and I hit the deck. She called out my name but I have no response.
The paramedics gave me an EKG and some quick bloodwork and everything seemed fine. They offered to take me to the hospital and at first I said, “No” but my wife convinced me to go and get checked now while everything is fresh. Some more tests and better bloodwork later and everything is still coming up good. The only thing the doctors can think of is that I may have been dehydrated. I drink enough water all day everyday that that feels unlikely but who knows?
Anyway… I’m bored as hell sitting here in a hospital bed waiting to be released so you guys get my story.
I will say that I was pretty scared when I came to but if my wife hadn’t been there I probably would have (stupidly) brushed it off completely.
