Topic: Potassium levels very, very low
Lee called me at work this morning with news that his bloodwork came back from yesterday at the oncologist. "Get to the hospital as quickly as you can"...they told him....your potassium level is so low, it puts you at extreme risk for heartattack....they actually told him to call the ambulance....but because we don't use the local hospital, he said he would just drive himself...so now, for tonight they will iv him with potassium and keep an eye on him...the worst part is when I told Emilee...she burst into tears...which is something she rarely does...at that moment I don't think I've used so many naughty words in my mind at once cursing this disease and how it destroys not only the patient, but those all around as well...Lee isn't the only one with cancer, we all have it...and to my utter dismay, so does Em...needless to say...she bounced right back and is playing with a friend right now...oh the wonderful rollercoaster ride this cancer puts us on...I thought rollercoasters were supposed to be fun!!! UUUUGGGHHH!!!
