Gramps, I am so sorry to hear what is going on with you. I was actually put back into the hospital for infection in my stomache, the same thing as the last time. I understand where you are at, it makes you so weak and I didn't eat or drink for days. I am glad you posted... when are you going to Mayo? I can't believe you are going through this and they haven't put you into the hospital to IV antibiotics into you. Thats insane. I'm sure you need fluids and potassium as well. Gramps, I will say a prayer for you. I hope this gets better for you soon. Lots of hugs- Shan.
