    Glad to here she is doing better, and home

    She's home now, seems to have been the perfect storm of two medications, getting briefly sick and throwing up, being on the new weight loss drug (Monjourno) which was like a super hard-core crash diet, then each of the things she was eating/drinking all contained amounts of potassium. BOOM!! Electrolytes way out of balance.
    Interesting.....

    See with my wife potassium levels actually need to be higher than normal??

    She has been pumped with bags of it through IV!!! I can tell you that is not fun, and it burns like fuck!!!! Worse than steroids!!!!!

    The problem with that is not this thing you call "Electrolytes"?? It is that everything with higher potassium is loaded with SUGARS!!!!!!!??

    Again everyone is different, and again glad they found the issues and fixed it


    I'm 52 and my thoughts are often pondering if I'm down to my last 5 years or my last 20. These thoughts have never been even a concern before. I believe it's a mix of a rough 15ish years and the seemingly endless celebrities who have always been in something or another passing away between the ages of 55 and 70. I find myself giving my daughter bits of hard-learned life lessons like I could be gone next week.
    Well you are ok then, you ain't no fucking celebrity

    I am a few years older than you and have had a few issues, and really nothing started until i turned 50!!

    Being in and out of the hospital with my wife, and praying a lot!!!, i have to say when G-D wants ya buddy, or in my case down below, that is it.....

    I have seen a lot of people i am close with go early, and buried them Meg, meaning putting them in the hole shovelling the dirt and completely filling the hole!!! and the truth, none of them have come back to tell me why they were taken?? Or angry why i did it??

    If one does i will let you know ok

    Repeat..... Glad your better half is ok and doing better

    PS. 70 doesn't sound that bad to me, if i am healthy enough to still play golf

    I have been using this term alot lately Meg "Quality of Life" , think about that?? and would be a good topic to discuss........

    She has no fucking idea nor does it bother her that she has that much!!???

    Glad to hear she's home, Megs.

    Imbalances and bad reactions are a pure-D bitch.

    I'm bloody lucky I'm not extraordinarily sensitive to such things; I've had my own problems with that type of thing, but only owing to my own ignorance or sloth, not on any "surprise" basis.

    Issues with meds and their mis/mal-administration have landed me in the hospital on a few occasions, and gout has been a periodic problem, but, at 65, those have been the minor issues...

    Yes, very glad she is back home Meg. That sir, is good progress.

    As we get older we can become more sensitive or can react adversely to any medications or supplements that we took before with no heed in taking them just a few years ago.

    Case in point... a few months back I had an adverse reaction to an anesthetic given to me during some spinal surgery I was having... I felt like I was losing my bloody mind for sometime after... it took a quite a while to work its way out of my system.

    I feel now my faculties are intact... well intact as they may have been before, which is not saying much.

    You know more of my past health issues than most folks here, but after every experience we or a loved one goes through that whole "mortality" conflict arises in all of us. Its natural.

    We both have a long while a head of us, just try to enjoy the journey.
