Several days ago our son passed out with heat stroke while drilling with his Reserve unit. He was taken by ambulance to the ER and was admitted to the ICU, where he has been ever since. He's doing much, much better now but that first day was scary. He is to the point of being bored now, but they are still monitoring his heart and want to run another test on Monday. My husband and I make the two-hour drive after the morning chores so we can be with him, then drive two hours home again to do the evening chores and milking, then fall into bed and do it all again the next day.
