ICU

I came as close to dying as I care to. I am thankful God was watching over me. I went to ER thinking I was having an asthma attack. I was very weak, short of breath, and had severe numbness in my face and hands. Until they had lab result they treated me like a crock. My lab came back with a critical CA level that was effecting all the muscle in my body including my heart. I came very close to dying that day. I was in ICU for three days getting loaded up on my CA. The doctor said she had never seen anyone with a level so low. I spent 2 more days in a step down unit monitoring my heart. The last thing they did was give me another bolus of CA before I left the hospital. I am suppose to see my doctor tomorrow for another CA check. The scary part is the symptoms are so non defined it is hard to tell what is going on. They believe it was caused by my surgery and nausea and vomiting. What ever caused it I don't want to go through that again!
