If you dont already have one, get one!

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

Two days ago, my daughter and her bf went over to my mom and dads house. They both got a headache while over there. I passed it off as from the heat. They are older and keep their house much hotter than we are used to. Then my son and his girlfriend came to visit yesterday and both later suffered a serious migraine. He suggested they get the place checked out. So they called a friend that does home inspections and he told them to go buy and carbon monoxide detector. Long story short, fire dept came, entered the house with their gas masks on, and told them they could not reenter. The chief told them they would not have survived the night!!
I am relieved to say they are here and fine staying the night with us but please check your house if you don't have one already! It could save your life

    Older people are on so many medications. That it thins their blood out, and they have no circulation, and are always cold. Wow that's scary! Those space heaters make you sick too, they smell like you are breathing in kerosene. It's a good thing that nothing happened. People leaving on their ovens, and going to sleep have died too. take care, haven't gotten to the project yet, been busy. Watch any good dvd's?
Have you ever seen War Horse, it was great. eva emoticon

  That is frightening!! Glad everyone is okay. We had our carbon monoxide detector in our coach go on the fritz. It was a hard wired one and started ringing and wouldn't go off. We had the darn thing replaced with a battery one which we are faithful to check the batteries in it. It is mandatory in a lot of states now to have them if you sell your house. Hope everyone will be alerted by your experience. Eileen

    Wow, that is scary. It was a requirement when we moved into this house, although old houses like ours are drafty and therefore not as risky as new structures. Everyone, please make a note to change your batteries whenever you reset clocks for daylight savings. Smoke and CO2 detectors don't do any good if their batteries aren't working!
