No, thank you for posting it! I’m so sorry this happened, but SO glad the people around him were smart and called the ambulance!!! Lots of rest and lots of sports drinks for him–he’ll need to replace fluids and electrolytes. I hope he feels better soon! What can you say? He had a reason to celebrate, and sometimes the more we celebrate, the less we think about whether we should have the next drink or not. Underestimating alcohol’s effect on us happens to all of us, especially if we’re drinking something we don’t usually have, so anyone who’s judging him for it is either a hypocrit or a complete and total… well, you know. 🙂

This is my worst nightmare – I have the same wedding date as you, but our parties are the Thursday before the wedding, so we don’t have much time to recover. Thanks for the reminder, and I’m glad your guy is alright.

Wow – that’s so scary! I’m so glad they decided to call the ambulance…I’ve heard way too many horror stories where everyone thought that the person would just “sleep it off”.

I’m glad to hear he’s okay!

OMG, glad to hear you both are ok.  I work in the liquor industry and I see this all the time.  We will not be doing this as we are both older and the next day it really really sucks.  The only reason  we are even having a hen party is for our friends, LOL, the guys are so looking for an excuse to go to the gogo bars and the girls are to (see the guys).

Wow… your post was totally in the back of my mind last night. We went to the Jimmy Buffett concert last night, and one of the guys who came with us ended up so intoxicated that he was essentially unresponsive. Our friend didn’t want the staff to call the paramedics, saying that we could just take him home and let him sleep it off. Now, keep in mind that this guy couldn’t even hold his head up, let alone walk! My fiance and I talked him into letting the paramedics take a look at him. Sure enough, they ended up sending him to the hospital by ambulance. Why? Because when he dropped his head and chin to his chest, he would stop breathing, but he was so intoxicated that his brain’s survival instinct wasn’t working to wake up him. His blood alcohol level at the hospital was 0.212, which means that 1/5 of what was coursing through his veins was alcohol.

I’m so glad that you posted this and that it was in the back of my mind during all of this. I was a little more insistent with my friend from the get-go because of it, so thank you.
