On Aug. 4, my husband and I were driving south on Metcalf Street when suddenly he pulled over into and across the entry/exit to the parking lot of the Husky Refinery saying he didn’t feel well. He thought he was going to pass out.
When he stopped the car, I started to get out and a truck came up and wanted to leave the lot. I yelled to the driver that my husband was sick. The gentleman immediately got out of his truck and asked if he could help. He asked my husband to say and do several things while at the same time feeling his pulse.
I realized he was checking for signs of a stroke.
We didn’t get his name, but we wanted to thank him. I took my husband to the emergency room at Lima Memorial where they decided to admit him for observation. He was there for three days while they ran every test for stroke or heart. All they found was that he was dehydrated and released him on Aug. 7.
Thank you again to a helpful and caring stranger.
