Update from @Freya.  To-Whose-Benefit is getting to the end of the road.  Freya is taking a break from TBR for the moment.

Godspeed, TWB.

@To-Whose-Benefit?       So sad.

Indeed so very sad; a definite loss for this forum.  May his soul through the mercy of God, rest in peace. 
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Prayers up for Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler. He had a "fainting spell during a news conference and was taken to the hospital. Early Diagnosis is that he was dehydrated.
I don't agree with his politics, but I don't wish harm on anyone.

I agree.  And dehydration is nothing to scoff at.   I've had it myself.  Left untreated, the organs can shut down and a person can die.  Don't wish that on anyone.

@Applewood

I THINK that in most people,dehydration is a symptom of another,more serious,underlying problem.

Unless of course you have been working out in the hot sun without taking breaks to drink water. In that case,the underlying problem is stupidity,and people should just leave you alone to do your thing.

Dehydration is a danger for me because I have diabetes and also take water pills from high blood pressure.  I think anything that makes you go to the bathroom too often while at the same not drinking enough fluids can lead to dehydration. 

Don't know if Mr. Nadler has any underlying health issues or he simply wasn't drinking enough.  I have found that I can't wait to be thirsty to drink.  I have to constantly have a glass or a bottle of water to drink from. Waiting till I get thirsty might be too late.

@Applewood

And that is the problem I have with fluid pills. Take them,and urinate to the point where you are thirsty and have to drink more water to replace what you have just spent the last few hours eliminating,and suddenly you need to take another one to eliminate the water you just drank.

It's like fluid pills are a powdered and compressed perpetual motion machine you take by mouth.

Please add Gene Ramsey to your prayers. He is a retired Tech teacher, actually he retired when they still called it shop. He is 90+ (he refuses to be specific) He took a fall the other day and they had to rush him to the hospital. They moved him to the Rehab center but the stubborn old goat wants to do everything for himself and the attendants there are afraid he will take another fall. They literally have to keep a volunteer in the room with him because he kept trying to sneak out of bed. Any ways please pray for him and the personnel working with him.
Thank you.

@verga

Prayers added for Mr. Ramsey and his caretakers.  My family is having problems with our 87-year-old aunt, who has been alone since our uncle passed (no children).  Trying to do everything herself without help, even though she obviously needs assistance.  Complaining of health issues; yet, refusing to see a doctor.  Our aunt though is of sound mind.  If she won't go to a doctor or get help with other things, there really is nothing we can do.  I can see us getting a call one day saying she has fallen or wrecked her car (yes, she is still driving even though she shouldn't) and has been badly injured or killed.   These older folks are of hardy stock.  Greatest Generation or right after.  They don't want to be delicate snowflakes like many of the kids of today.  Admirable for the most part, but that stubborn iron will in certain circumstances  can hurt or kill them.  We can only pray that the Good Lord watches over them and keeps them from harm.

Thank you all for the prayers. I heard this morning that he is making progress, but they are still keeping him in rehab. One of his former students told me that he is being more cooperative.

So many older folk, my father-in-law and mother among them, absolutely refused to leave their homes. My mother insisted that retirement communities were where people went to die, and my f-i-l said they'd have to take him "feet first" out of his house. He died of a stroke while putting on his shoes one day, whereupon he was indeed carried out feet first. My mother fell down the stairs and died after two months in the hospital and a rehabilitation hospital, never having returned home. Both were 89.

I hope to be more agreeable if I get to that age!

Prayers for Mr. Ramsey and applewood's aunt.
