I just got a call from my dad and apparently my mom is in the hospital. around 7 this morning she had him take her to the ER because she was lightheaded and her arms were feeling like "icy hot" they admitted her to the icu so they could monitor her, small hospital problably don't have telemetry any other place. they are saying that her potassium is low and that is why this is happening. I was talking with my dad who of course can't remember what her potassium level was anyway she is getting iv potassium apparently she is really sleepy which is puzzling to me maybe just wore out.
my dad says not to come down to see her, it's 2 hours away and I just found out now because I worked till 8 this morning and have been sleeping all day, I really want to go because I am really close with my mom but I have an appointment in the morning tomorrow and can't cancel, i've been having problems with high bp over the weekend and need to get checked out.

I don't know if I should just drive down there just in case or if it's really not that serious.

Oh No!! Sorry to hear it!! If I were you I would call the hospital and talk to the charge nurse in ICU to get a better idea of what is going on with her, if she is stable I'm sure she would want you to keep your appointment because you've been having BP issues!! Can you go see her after the appointment tomorrow? Sending prayers for your family!!!

Oh, I wish you had more information/better information to help you make a decision! Maybe you could just hold off and see what the next 24 hours brings? Hugs!

I agree that calling and talking to the nurse in charge would probably give you a lot of answers. If you find out great news and that what is going on is not at all serious then I would say keep your appointment and take care of yourself and your LO. You will have to decide from what the nurse tells you if you feel driving there would be a good idea. Hopefully everything turns out ok, I am thinking of you guys!

so I went to leave to see her and since I slept all day and didn't look outside I didn't realize that we have dense fog. so I talked to my mom on the phone and she is still having these "spells" her potassium was up to almost 3 at noon, normal is 3.5-4.5 her blood pressure is low but that's because they gave her bp meds I guess. the docs still think it's from her low potasssium but she says she isn't feeling much better. I am now planning on leaving to go see her tomorrow after my appointment as long as the fog lifts

well she is feeling a bit better and her potassium is up to a normal level so she gets to go home this afternoon so I didn't end up going to see her. she has to see a cardiologist because she had an abnormal ekg so we will find out if she has anything wrong with her heart later on.

I agree with above. Does your Mom have a phone in her room? I hope she feels better soon!

I'm so, so sorry! My t&p are with you and your family. I'm sure she'll be fine, but I understand why you're so worried. Try to take care of yourself too, this can't be good for your bp...big hugs honey! Please keep us posted!
