My husband got home from the hospital last night. He is feeling really tired, but ok. He went back to work today, although he probably shouldn't have. He doesn't get sick pay at his work. For that matter, he doesn't get holiday pay or paid vacation either! A piece of crap, to me! Anyway, he had already missed three days this week, so he decided he'd better go.
Did you know that if your body doesn't have enough potassium, your heart will stop??? That's what we learned this week. The docs found out that his level was really low, and that his heart was complaining about it. After several IV bags full, his level is ok now, not all the way up, but ok. They're pretty sure his high blood pressure meds were the culprit, he's on new ones now.
Hopefully, things will get back to normal now, whatever that is!
