We had a full blown DK event last week. I landed in Atlanta returning from Mexico and turned on my cell phone to hear that my wife is on the way to the hospital, and I have half a country left to travel. Delta broke my bag and lost the tag, TSA and Delta staff were completely non accommodating on getting me through the security recheck lines, and then the airplane broke, Can it get any worse... I made it to his bedside at 1AM. He recovered well and by breakfast time could keep food down. By lunch he was beating nurses at air hockey. By 5 pm he wanted more of the hospital food! What brought it on, we couldn't identify. The doctors say "it just happens, we never know." The hospital staff was surprised that this was the very first time he had been admitted since diagnosis 4 1/2 years ago. I hope to never see him in that condition again.
