Gus again - if you read my post that I was hospitalized, my electrolytes were way out of balance, especially my potassium which had dropped to 3.1 (normal range is 3.7 to 5.2) due to severe diahearra and not eating for over a week (dehydration). Doctors wanted to keep me hospitalized longer.

A post of thanks is all I want.

Thank you,

Gus

Hi Gus!

Don't think we've talked on-line but I'm so sorry to hear of your hospitalization!

My appendix ruptured in Oct. 09 and I was in hosp. for 6 days, with the same horrible bowels you must be having.

Interesting about the potassium... Mine is always at the low end of 'normal' range (3.8) and I can't even imagine what it was when I was hospitalized.

Make'em pump you back up and get well soon.

Best of everything to you.

Perhaps consider a hydration protocol to add to whatever you are doing, it is crucial for cell communication and survival.
