update

Update:
I'm back from the urgent care. Good thing I went I guess- I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low so they had to do an EKG. That came back good so I'm on potassium and have to get that rechecked next week.
The fluids helped a lot- I felt better already when I left. Now I just need my GI tract to settle down enough that I can keep things in me- so far not good yet, but the Dr expects within the next couple doses of meds it will settle down.
Thanks so much for the prayers- I've never had a viral bug get me this bad before- old age I guess:)

I am new to viewing your site so I haven't read up on all the details. Nonetheless, It's good to hear that you felt better already upon being back from urgent care. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so glad you went and seem to be getting a little more on top of it all now. I had something like this a few years ago and also tested for low potassium. I remember having absolutely NO ENERGY and having a stomach upset ALL the time! That was the worst illness I think I've ever had. You sound like you have a really bad case of whatever this is! Listen to the doctors and take the time you need to get better.

You must have really been weak! I surely hope today is a better day. Please get well because this is a big weekend coming up.

Cheri,

I missed the prayer while you were sick, I will pray for you now though.

Goodness, that sounds just awful. And when mom is down with an illness, the whole family stops. What a sweet friend you have that brought you over dinner.

Get some rest friend.
