MOM GOT FOOD POISONED & DARN NEAR DIED!. AND NO HELP IN SUBURY OR ONTARIO - IT WAS GOOGLE SAVED US BOTH!  TRUE STORY MARCH 3:00 AM 23RD, 2014

 

 

VOMITING SEVERAL HOURS, DIARRHEA OVER SEVERAL HOURS CAUSED DEHYDRATION.  DEHYDRATION WILL CAUSE YOUR HEART TO STOP!  SINCE THIS WAS SO SERIOUS & SO FEW PEOPLE KNOW WHAT TO DO I THINK IT NECESSARY TO LOG HERE PLUS I WILL POST ONTO MY FACEBOOK ECT PROFILE ON LINKEDIN..

 

3 AM March 23rd, mom called me for help.  I rushed up to her and found out she was in big trouble!  She had been throwing up several hours plus had diarrhea.  She did not tell me sooner because she did not want to go to the hospital.  Being as mom is 95 I knew this was serious.    

 

Last May I wound up in a near fatal heart attack due to dehydration.  Too busy, I did not drink anything for 22 hours.  I got lucky, since I never throw up even when I was a drunk in DT's I called an ambulance when I suddenly started throwing up!  The doctor at the emergency was young, handsome and intelligent, and did not mistreat me as they have in the past, accepted my Parkinsonism Disease, and let me keep my gas mask.  He said if I would only drink one shot glass of my water every 5 hours this would never happen again.  I gave permission for the 'salene drip with salt' because I knew I would take an attack, but it would not be fatal.  It caused severe fever & chills & they put microwaved warm blankets on me.  No matter how much you research, you can never know everything!  Point is I never realized how serious not drinking water was but did now.

 

So, all of that flashed back into my head! 

 

Mom was dehydrated & that means potassium salt will come out of your cells and your heart will just stop!  Heart stops, you die!  No pain nothing, just die.  I called immediately for help to our local hospital but they are not allowed to advice by phone so transferred me to some kinda medical Ontario help line.  Some help?  The nurse who answered was extremely callous & cruel.  Luckily I did not allow the "witch" on the phone to tie me up with her 'dispicable games'.  (Recently my bank clerk confirmed she had a similar experience, forced to stay on the line for any hour,  then, she hung up called an ambulance, by then the patient could have died!)  I don't intimidate that easily.  I cursed the 'witch' & went to google begging for help.  I did tell Mom that she was dehydrating & could have a heart attack, but she pleaded to try at home.  Google's help was amazing and it worked!  They asked the question could she drink water? No I typed.  So they typed back to get a cup of warm water (not hot) few seconds in the microwave.  Make mom sit up and keep her brain active, don't let her lay down or fall asleep.  And then to just sip drops on the lips and mouth, do not swallow, just keep sipping slowly as warm and wet it will be absorbed through the skin.  It took 2 hours but by 5 am mom had sipped 3 cups of water.  They suggested to let her rest and then try to get salt/water or chicken broth to replace the loss of salt which is the reason your heart will stop!  Okay so I let her lay down, to sleep for 1 hour on the sofa as per their instructions.  I lay down, beside mom on the floor, not sleeping so I could check her breathing and if I saw any bad change I would have called an ambulance & forced mom to the hospital.  So far so good, she was peacefully sleeping and breathing fine, so the 3 cups of water were working.  No more vomitting.  6 am I woke her up, made her sit up again and slowly had her do the same with chicken broth, sip slowly.  That took over an hour or more.  By this time, the fear and shock to me was such, I had no idea of day, time or year.  I did not let her go to bed.  I insisted on her sleeping on the sofa, so I could hear her breathing.  So I let her sleep about 5 hours, laying beside on the floor to make sure her breathing was okay.  Later on I had her eat Chicken Soup, on and off the rest of that day and the next day as well.  I investigated what she ate, first off Dandelion Root Tea triggered the vomitting.  Mom did continue to have light diarrhea after eating for a week.  March 24, I took sick by a small piece of blueberry pie, 3 hours later, I had cramps and exploding diarrhea.  Later discovered that was going off because her fridge was defective.  I did manage to take care of her but lost track of myself.  Then I got very sick, not as bad as mom, no vomiting but diarrhea.  I now knew mom's tea had started her food poisoning but the pie made me sick.  In my confusion and having Parkinsonism, plus exhaustion I got only diarrhea but no dehydration.  I drank low acid apple juice 4 days by the bucket.  I could not eat any real food and when I tried diarrhea exploded.  So for a week I stayed on apple juice.  Day 6, I switched to chicken soup and lost track of my days.  I took a Parkinsonism attack because my immune system had been overloaded, so it took me longer than mom to get well.  Point is, the sipping thing works!  Mom was eating and getting back to normal in about a week.  Dan had to carry the load, pick me up, carry me up and down stairs...  help mom.  And we ordered a new fridge.  

 

Fridges can kill.  The freezer dial stopped working, but the dial did not give us any indication of temperature so we had no way of knowing or controlling the problem.  The first fridge I purchased cost $1,500.00 and the freezer dial has only OOO no temperature indicator.  THAT WENT BACK!  I WAS FURIOUS!  So I hope this helps someone.  Today I am great.  Well only one day, eating food 2 days but I cross country skied, 2.5K climbed Capreol Mtn and made a new ski video of Dan & Me, April 2, 2014 with my new Go Pro camera.

Tomorrow, Mom, me & Dan are going dancing.  So far so good.

 

In my confusion I lost what google & who they are that they connected me to.  So I have no copy and no way to say thank you except to say!   GOOGLE THANK YOU SO MUCH, YOU SAVED MOM & ME!
