To celebrate my 8 week post-surgiversary (yes, it is a word!)

I will be spending the morning in the hospital to have an EGD (do not ask me what that stands for either).  It's a scope.  They sedate me, they stick a camera down my throat and check things out.  This is because of the "frothing" (I call it puking/vomiting, but whatever) that I've been experiencing for a couple two three weeks now.  See?  I've lost track of how long it's been going on!  On Thursday, I couldn't keep tea down.  Yes, the decaf herbal tea that I am supposed to drink 30 minutes before a meal.  Uh huh!  I know!  So, that's how I will be "celebrating".  Hey, as long as Dr. H. figures out why and fixes it, I'm cool.  The theory is still that the connection between my pouch & small intestine has healed so well (always striving for perfection, that's me! lol) that it is too small for most food (chewed very well) to pass through.  I have spoken to several people who have had to have this "dilation" or "dilit…

The week I went back to work Shelby was REALLY sick.  I allowed her to stay during the day with her dad (see? I'm being nice) and his mom.  The next week, I was sick!  The doctor put me on antibiotics and I stayed home sick Tuesday & Wednesday and kept my germs from the office and worked from home on Thursday.  I was coughing so badl…
