I have just returned from helping to care for my mom who was in the hospital. She has CHF [congestive heart failure] and she had O.D.'ed [accidently] on Milk of Magnesia. Her magnesium level was 11.7. Normal is about 2. The doctor had dialysis done on her & placed her in a medically induced coma. She is back at home, but in "not so good" shape. She is very overweight and hasn't exercised in...forever. She can improve her situation, but it is a "personal choice."
Anyway, with the stress of it all & flying across country. I used food as a comfort. My weight is now @ 152. That is the most I have EVER weighed other than when I was pregnant. Trying to get back on track. I do not want to end up like my mom. She struggles to breath, to walk, just to function at all. It's sad to witness. Trying to encourage her in the right direction.
Make GOOD health choices - - it is so worth it!!
