Hi all,

I'm Kitkatz sister.  I wanted to let you know she is back in the hospital with an infection.  Her husband and I got her to the hospital last night - another ride in the ambulance - no lights or siren!  They kept her in ER for a long time to figure out what the issue was then admitted.  She should be out of the hospital on Thursday or Friday.

Send her good thoughts.

Thanks Creakinator for updating folks around here for me.  It was a crazy Kaiser visit for two days.  My doctor thinks maybe a virus hit me out of nowhere.  He said things can get me quickly because I have been on D for so long.  I have lovely black and blue spots down my right arm from Kaiser trying to put IVs in me and get blood.  I pulled an IV because I wanted to this trip and I was slightly crazy.  I have discovered I need someone with me in the hospital or I lose my mind a little bit.  It felt like a run in with sepsis but nothing showed upin the blood work saying it was sepsis.  My brain acted like it was on sepsis for a few days.

No doubt we were ALL worried.Since my Wife has gone into the Nursing Home I have learned how even just your run of the mill UTI can wack out an elderly mind.

Who knew? And I do mean wacked, she doesn't know what she is doing or saying.   And it comes on so rapidly no one knows.    Daughter has noticed that Mom's face begins to sort of flush, a rosieness comes into her cheeks.   Sometimes, but not always, accompanied with a very light sweat across her brow.

When she sees this she now immediately gets the Nurse and asks for a Lab to be run to confirm, then the Dr orders an A/B started.    Since Mom is partially incontinent she is nearly always wet, so she gets these UTI's too often, at least monthly.

I wonder if your sodium levels were just enough out of whack to give you symptoms but maybe not so far out of whack for the doctor to be overly concerned. It's frustrating when they can't give you a definitive answer. Perhaps your body is super sensitive to the slightest change or germ that enters. Glad it wasn't anything worse. Being in a hospital is hell. Rest and take good care of yourself to avoid a rebound.

One time while I was on PD and taking massive amounts of potassium supplements my level still dropped to a critical level.  My body went into neutral.  I couldn't figure out what was wrong, I just couldn't move.  Like instant and total exhaustion.  I could not even stand up, much less walk.  And a bit confused.

Ambulance rise.  Blood tests clearly showed the problem.  A couple IV bags of high potassium and I was fine within a couple hours.

They kept me anyway.

Potassium too far off either way is no joke.

ER Doc told me I was VERY Lucky my heart didn't stop, I was that low.

I still haven't figured out why as I was eating and taking my supplement as directed.

Now switched to Hemo I have to be totally opposite and NOT eat hardly a bite.

That was quite the change.
