Re: Another cool day and more.
How old is Ronan? His having no potassium or magnesium in his system would concern me. Did they tell you why this happened? Had he stopped eating or is it a kidney issue? I was suddenly very weak in the hosp last year and that was the cause - magnesium! No one there knew what caused it after being hospitalized (for cellulitis). They gave me an infusion and in no time I was fine. Now I have to take a supplement every day. No big deal. I pop-a-pill every morning. I also have to stay on a low-carb diet because like some family members, my blood sugar is tending to run high. I don't want to wait until diabetes sets in. Of course I do cheat occasionally. Last night at the dinner I had a big scoop of scalloped potatoes. They were to die for.
Can they help Mike in any way at UCLA? I remember the surgery didn't help - perhaps new medications? I don't know much about the condition he has. Is this the one where the coating protecting the nerves starts to disappear?
