"Sometimes when we get overwhelmed we forget how big God is." -A.W. Tozer Hey everyone, I'm more than halfway through my 5 weeks of IV iron infusions....but I'm still very exhausted. :(  I woke up at 4 pm today because yesterday was so rough---my blood sodium and magnesium levels were pretty low which made me so weak.  My blood sugar yesterday also dropped.....my hands shook terribly from it, and I was nauseated.  Because I had to wake up early for an appointment, the mito fatigue made me not be able to empty my bladder numerous times throughout the day which was just plain agony....
