She was also very cold and clammy all day. Afew hours ago, about seven thirty PM, She through up again. Shortly after that, Elyza started breathing strange. Her heart started beating strangely also. The nurse came in to check on Elyza because of the strange readings. Elyza started going blue, so the Nurse gave her oxygen. She looked a little better. But, then she through up again during her oxygen treatment. The rest happened so quickly that it was hard to take it all in. It seems that one second she was getting help from the nurse and the next, they were calling out a code blue and doctors and nurses were running in to the room. Elyza's heart dropped to about fifty-five beats per minute. They did blood work on her and they determined that her electrolytes were down to 102 and her potassium level was up to 8.5.
