    Default Oh $hit, my skin baby is in the hospital. Prayers would be appreciated.

    Got a call this morning while I'm at work letting me know that my son (24 years old) is in the emergency room. His fiance was there with him as well. Well it turns out that he had drill this past weekend (he's in the Marine Corps Reserve out in NC) and they had what he described as some "intense workouts". Now my boy is in wicked good shape, 6'3" and weighs in at about 175 lbs. He does weight training and runs 10 miles a day. He said he was sore on Monday, thought it was normal - it was not. I found out today that his urine had changed color (never a good sign) and when he woke up this morning he could not straighten out his arms.

    He went to an Urgent Care that immediately transferred him to an ER. His kidneys were showing signs of shut down. He has some called Rhabdomyolysis (Rhabdo for short). Because I'm across the country and freaking out, I did research like crazy. Rhabdomyolysis is always triggered by muscle injury. That injury can be caused by physical means (crushed by weight, starved by blocked blood vessel) or by chemical means (toxins, heat, or drugs). The breakdown products when muscle is damaged include a protein called myoglobin. Myoglobin is related to hemoglobin. Both are proteins in the body. Hemoglobin transports oxygen in the blood; myoglobin stores oxygen in muscles. When myoglobin is released into the blood after muscle injury, it is filtered out of the body by the kidneys. Since myoglobin is toxic to the small tubules of the kidneys, high levels of this protein can damage the kidneys and may result in acute renal failure

    I will be holding off on flying out there just because he keeps telling me not to and my father (who is a retired doc) said there is nothing I can do. Thoughts and prayers from the group would be appreciated.

    Thank you all!!!! He was transferred to hospital in Cary and his fiance is there with him. Just hard to be so far away and feel so helpless

    -kd-mom-parents-day-jpgHere is a pic of him and I at his "Parent's Day" at Parris Island. He hates the pic because he has on his bootcamp glasses. It makes me smile.

    This Rhabdo stuff is scary but hopefully they have caught it early enough that he won't have any lasting renal damage. PRAYERS PRAYERS PRAYERS
