Was there no walk-in's near you or was it too late? I know it sucks after having to go and finding out it was just low potassium. But what if it wasn't? NO ONE has foresight into a diagnosis. It could have been so much worse. Unfortunately you weren't able to find an urgent care open for blood tests, but FORTUNATELY she's okay! No one likes blowing that much money on a doctors visit, especially learning it was a mild issue. It's happened to me before when I first got married. Better safe than sorry, and low potassium CAN be deadly if left untreated!
Every time I hear a story like this, I'm amazed that you would have to pay anything at all for what sounds like basic medical care. The fact that you do should outrage everyone. In Australia this would be free to any citizen or permanent residents.
