Big bleeds and middle of the night hospital.
I lunched with the Houghtons today at the Old Butter Factory. It was a significant meeting. We met on Facebook with a common Urunga background and we are all teachers. Then a few months back, Andy came down with sepsis and was ill like me. Very ill indeed. Then J had a heart attack. There we were today – alive and happy. They were the ones who got the Izzy locket for me in Berry. It felt like we had known one another for years.
Later I went to the Girls and saw their new vegie garden. Simple days like these sustain me.
I went to Death Cafe today at the Youth Hub. It was an experience. A curious experience. And a venture out. I also had a green smoothie upstairs as I did last week.
I am starting to get used to my new camera. I cannot work out how to transfer images via wireless to the iMac or the iPad. I did do it once but now I don’t know how.
I am on Facetime now – my link with my family.
One more day done. More or less. One more day.
ANOTHER OF THE PRINCIPALS WHEN I PRESENTED AT ICU IN SEPT 2014. NOONE HAS DEALT WITH THIS ONE WITH ME EITHER.
Hypokalemia means low potassium levels in the blood.
This condition doesn’t always show symptoms.
Adding potassium-rich foods (e.g., bananas, spinach, and milk) to your diet may help prevent hypokalemia.
Hypokalemia is when blood’s potassium levels are too low. Potassium is an important electrolyte for nerve and muscle cell functioning, especially for muscle cells in the heart. Your kidneys control your body’s potassium levels, allowing for excess potassium to leave the body through urine or sweat.
Hypokalemia is also called:
low potassium syndrome
Mild hypokalemia doesn’t cause symptoms. In some cases, low potassium levels can lead to arrhythmia, or abnormal heart rhythms, as well as severe muscle weakness. But these symptoms typically reverse after treatment. Learn what it means to have hypokalemia and how to treat this condition.
I have a new camera. Its a compact and its going to take me a while to readjust my thinking from the bigger cameras. It has all the capacity of the bigger ones. It will be like learning to read on my Kindle.
A snake came a visiting yesterday. Just passed through. I went out for dinner with my Girls.At the Federal Hotel. Visitors came and the new camera was delivered.
Today – well I went to the NA meeting and it was gritty and I enjoyed it. I have plenty of good GreenGrocer food here. Facetime to Eden is on. I shall simply stay with slideshows for these 2 days.
