Gavin has stabilized out over night and although his ionized calcium in still 0.8 with low normal being 1, he is looking almost totally back to his happy self. It is basically going to be a game trying to balance out his levels again. By giving Gavin calcium is has caused his potassium to drop to extremely low levels and by giving him more potassium we will have to watch other things like his Mag and Phos. It just a big balancing act. I though you may all enjoy some lighter points to our past 24 hours:
As we loaded Gavin, seemingly in a critical state and barely coherent, into the back of the ambulance and drove away Gavin managed to tell us how "cool" it was and pointed out the back window.
I was asked to call Adam from the back of the ambulance because he was running through red lights and driving like James Bond, chasing the seeding ambulance to duPont.
After Dr. R examined Gavin and said bye, Gavin gave him a nice wave with his "claw".
Hey -- you just have to find the lighter side to the big mess, right?
