Twice in the last two years, I had to be rushed to the ER for sever dehydration. The second time, last April, the ER Doc was adamant that I was about 6 hours away from death because of all the fluids I needed.
I kept apologizing to my brother and best friend because they both missed a day of work to sit with me in the ER. I kept saying that if I had been dying or bleeding, it would have "been worth their while." and I guess I underestimated how dangerous dehydration is because the ER doc said that having 3 bags of IV is a very serious thing and if I stayed home like I wanted to, nothing good would have happened. My blood sugar has spiked up to the high 400s as well because of the dehydration.
