Another Health Scare........

Our day started wonderfully. Got to the Hard Rock Casino
at about 10:30 and hung out at the pool for about 4 hours. Beautiful
day.... High 70's and sunny. Water was cold, but it didn't matter.

We all got VERY sunburned.

Checked into our room.... fabulous. This is the only place that I'll
want to stay in the future. Great huge shower, 45 inch plasma tv,
nice view of the Gulf.

The 3 of us went down to the casino and played 20 bucks each of video
poker..... that 20 bucks  kept us occupied for literally HOURS.  What fun!

Eventually, went back up to the room, showered, changed, then walked
next door to the Beau Rivage Casino for their dinner buffet. Plenty
of boiled shrimp, crab legs..
.had a grand time until about 8:30

Dom looked funny. Said he was dizzy. SHIT. It was like Deja Vu from
Ft. Myers.  His eyes started to roll back into his head. FUCK.
I'm sorry that Christine had to witness that.

I asked that they call 911 and get me cold compresses. Head of
security came over....wonderful man. I'm going to write a letter to
his boss....he was so sweet and compassionate.  Unbelievable.

Paramedics came in, along with the Fire Department.


Dom started to "come around" and speak. His first blood pressure
reading was frightening.... about 91/40. Had a hard time feeling a
pulse. Eventually went up to about 100/70.

This is the same thing that happened in Florida. Dom refused
to go to the hospital, and I was in agreement. He was fine.

Decided that the common denominator was
SUNBURN..... he had gotten too
much sun in the convertible driving to Florida in December.

SO....... rather than walk back home, security got us a taxi to drive
about 1/8 mile. The guy thought we were joking. *smiling*

We were in bed for 10 pm.

I'm glad you all are OK!!! Especially Dom! :) That is scary - you kind of forget what too much fun in the sun can do to you. But you have to be careful. Thanks for the updates :)
