Doctor's visit.........

I went and saw my doctor today. He was a little stumped as to why I was having the reflux I've been having. It's been almost like aspirating. I wake up coughing and have to get up and move to my recliner. He looked at the pictures of my barium swallow taken back in February when I had a problem and said they looked normal so he was reluctant to have me take another one without first trying to remove a bit of saline from my band. He removed a tiny amount and said to give it a week. If after a week I am still suffering from the same thing he will send me for another barium swallow (upper GI) and get a gastroenterologist involved as well. I am hoping I will have a better night tonight.

We went to Costco while we were in the Eugene area. We don't have one here near where we live. They are planning on building one here next year though. Our friends found a house they like and made an offer on it. It was counter-offered and they accepted. So they will be home owners here in another month. Then they will go back and pack up their home in So Cal and move it all up here. They are planning on selling the house in California. I think I will call it a night now. I am very tired.

I hope you are feeling better soon. It will be nice to have your friends close by. Take care!

Oh darlin'... you've been having a time of it, haven't you?
I hope you have a better night tonight!

Out Costco opens next month, and I'm biting my fingernails in anticipation!
Low costs... YAY! I'm sick to death of paying $4.00 for a loaf of bread!

Hi Kathy,

How are you feeling since they took some saline out? Hopefully much better! Great news for your friends. I hope their home sells quickly!!

I really hope this helps you! My hubby is suffering something fierce with this reflux (he is not banded). These past few weeks have been horrible--he keeps me up all night with his gagging and coughing. I can only imagine what you are going through!
As for my hubby--I attribute it to his very poor eating habits, his stressful job, his horrid travel schedule, his lack of exercise and his crankiness (God is getting him back...LOL!). I guess I should be the loving wife and help the guy out! But, he has not been very lovable lately. But, your post has inspired me to try. Maybe I'll go wake him up (he's sleeping on the porch swing) and ask him to take a walk! I'll bet you $100 he'd think I was waking him up for dinner and when he finds out I'm not--he'll ask me for dinner!

Hi Kathy,

Saw your post on Judi's blog. So glad you're feeling better. That must have been horrible.
