Im at work right now and my boss was sittin here bs'n with us and like 20 minutes later, I look over at his desk and he is sleeping in his chair with his head tilt back and his left arm stiff as a board. His left arm is up by his face, just stiff. I went over to wake him and he came out of it and mumbled, so I walked off and 10 minuted later I look over and see him again, same way!! :eek: Paramedics are on their way!! Everyone is freaking out!!

If his arm is stiff. He might be posturing, which is common during strokes. Usually one arm (or both) with raise and go to one side of the body up near the eye or the ear.

I will keep everyone posted. I just found out that he takes TONS of meds!! We looked into his desk and found a plastic bag full of meds. My group lead just also told me he has prostate cancer and he is Manic Depressed. In his bag we found depression medication, and viagra :eek: (weird). I hope he didnt overdose!!

Sounds more like a stroke if you ask me. Did he say anything about having blurred vision or "lights seems really bright"?? Most of the time before a stroke occurs a person will have blurred vision and the lights seem so bright that they can barely open their eyes.


When a stoke usually occurs the patient will also appear sleepy and can not respond in complete sentences.

Paramedics are here and they are cutting his clothes off, he is not responding or talking, pulse really low, and very very short breaths. Paramedics are talking all these wierd hospital terms, like watching ER live.

No, he wasnt complaining about either, im sure he would be to embarrassed to say, he's like that, since hes depressed.

cutting and low pulse...I'd imagine he won't be in next week. Get ready for the office flower/card/get well donations...hopefully.

Take care,

No, my desk is right next to his, and I can hear and see everything, im just here typing. Other co-workers here think im being strong and continually to work thru all this. I will be recognized as the strongest worker thru tough times. :confused: Suddenly I dont wanna work. This stuff dont happen everyday, i want a "i cant handle this" and go just go home Pass.
