I had to call 911 for my husband.

Yesterday my husband had a hard day. We were in the garage getting things together to go to the balloon festival and I heard something hit the washing machine. I assumed my husband dropped something. Five seconds later I turn to look for him and he is in the floor, having a seizure.

As quickly as it started, it was over. He hopped up telling me he was okay. But then he started feeling shaky and really weak. Off to the phone I went to call 911.

They were there within minutes. All his vitals checked out fine. They didn't think it was a real seizure, instead something to do with low blood pressure. They said they were comfortable with him staying home and watching how he felt.

Nothing has happened since. But it wad sure scary! I hope it never happens again.

Yikes - I bet that was scary to watch. I went to high school with a guy who suffered from seizures and it was always scary when he had one.

I am glad 911 responded so quickly and that your husband is okay!

I'm glad they got there quickly and he appears to be okay, but that is SCARY!! It's hard to see any seizure, let alone your very healthy HUSBAND! I'm so, so thankful you are all okay.

I'm sure this goes without saying, but I'm sure you'll be following up with his PCP to get a full workup. I'm very glad he is okay and that you were there to take care of him. It's so scary when something happens to our men!

Scary...hope it was just a fluke one-time thing.

Wow, that's crazy! Is he on any weird medications that lower his B.P.? I have low blood pressure but have never done that... glad you were there!

Hugs! Stuff like that is really scary to see. I'm really really glad you were able to stay calm enough to call 911, and that he's ok.

I'm glad he is feeling better now. I am sure you were freaked out- I know I would have been!!

Seizures are awful. We had a friend in college who had the same thing happen to him and he has been okay since. Hopefully your hubby will be the same way. How scary though!!

I'm so glad he is ok & they responded so quickly!!! I can't even imagine how scary that must have been to watch.

Oy! I'm glad that the EMTs got there quick... but I'm sorry that you and your dh had to go through that! I hope he's ok...

That must have been scary. Y'all simply don't know how to have a quiet life, do you? Sadly, I can identify with the constant crazies. Hope life stays calm and quiet for a while.

I would be really scared myself. I'm glad that he's okay.
