Onward

The endoscopy is over, now we await the stomach and esophagus biopsy results. So far the doctor says it is severe gastritis and some other inflammation. A new med promises relief and healing. It will all be fine, I know it. Slept most of the afternoon yesterday and then through the night. LM took really good care of me, while Ms G spent all night cuddled with HIM and not me. I'm still feeling the route of the endoscope as it passed down my throat to its goals. OUCH. Otherwise, I am fine and will be at work today. Got out of bed at 5 am and drove home in the very crisp quietness of early morning to get ready for work. The stars seemed so bright and I never saw another car...black ice slowed me down and gave me time to contemplate how beautiful my life really is in this lovely part of the world, and just how very much good fortune fills my days.

Good Heavens! you might have brought some work clothes with you so you didn't have to get up so darn early! Hoping your new meds will quickly start you healing. Can't have you walking around in pain all the time!! Am keeping my fingers crossed on the biopsys. Have a good day!...debbie

You always have such a way of finding the good. In people. In life. In circumstances. It's very inspiring.

Have a great day. Drink some hot tea with honey for that throat.
