Never a dull moment!!!

So last night, I took Sean to emerg ...he had severe stomach pains...and for him to not be able to handle it..it was bad. He has a very high pain tolerance...so I knew when he couldn't take it anymore it was time to get it checked (but boy is he stubborn LOL )
He's had chronic heartburn for months...I've been bugging him to get it checked so finally last week when he had a check up with his doctor about his back, we mentioned it. The doctor gave him a pill which for the most part was working. Last night they gave him some really yucky pink stuff to drink which helped a little bit..so the doctor gave him a stronger medicine ...and is sending him for an ultra sound. He says it's one of two things...an ulcer or his gall bladder. We are pretty sure it's an ulcer as the stuff helped him last night and he's feeling a little better today.
Besides...with the stress that has happened in our lives in the last two years...an ulcer seems pretty likely. SO...no alcohol, spicy foods, fatty foods...hmmm...guess that leaves salads with no dressing...BORING...but better then something more serious!!

I was going to upload a couple recent layouts but for some reason it's not working..I've done it twice and when it says 'done' there are no images...gotta love technology...oh well..you'll just have to wait hahahahahahaha

Tomorrow is MRI day at Mt. Sinai in Toronto...this will determine exactly how well the tumor responded to the chemo...but I can tell you, I don't even think I can feel it anymore...so I'd say it responded well!!!

Have a wonderful day

Keep Smilin'

Oh T, if it doesn't rain it sure pours for you! Tell Sean that I hope he is feeling better and hopefully the pills will continue to help him with his pain. Hopefully the ultrasound will give you the lesser of 2 evils for a result and not have it be something more serious.

I am thinking about you, and I hope to catch up with you soon. Miss our chats lately, but things have gotten nuts.

Medical diagnosis on acid reflux or heartburn may have caused by regular smoking, drinking alcohol and stress. But changing the kind of lifestyle and diet that you practice can control lessen the pain. It's better to take natural medications to improve one's health condition.
