My daughter, my husband and granny



For years I've been hearing stories of my husband fainting for no good reason as a child. Now he only does this before he vomits, which scares me to death. Although he did have a couple of episodes during the hot summer while spending lots of time out in the sun sweating a lot. Now I know that it's from dehydration. One of my daughters also faints before vomiting. My husband's grandmother also did this. I have learned so much from reading the threads on this site. As with other writers on this site, they all speak of the dream they were having while they were out. I will be pushing gatorade this summer! Thanks for all the info.
