Good evening. Well I've had two clinic visits since my last update. Thursday's visit was great, both my magnesium and sodium were in the normal ranges. However, they wanted to check how my magnesium did without having infusions for a few days. (my home infusions ran out on Wednesday so I did not have infusions on Thurs. or Fri.). So we went back to clinic today to get my magnesium checked and of course it was low. So I had to have a magnesium infusion in clinic. At home I get 4 grams over 4 hours. At the clinic today they gave me 6 grams over 4 hours and this made me feel really yucky. I got very hot during the infusion and by the time we got home I was nauseous and vomiting. So needless to say I miss my home infusions! We go back on Tuesday to check again and probably get more mag at the clinic. This is the only "problem" that is keeping me from "graduating from clinic" as the nurses say. Also, if I get away from needing magnesium infusions they will take my Hickman out, which will be nice.
Hope you all have a relaxing labor day,
