No fill this time......

Well, when I went to the doctor yesterday he went over my case with me and I told him I have to sleep with several pillows propped under my head and that I still have heartburn and reflux. He said, You need another barium swallow. We need to find out why this is happening to you. It isn't normal. I asked what they would do for it if it was a dilated esophagus and he said he would completely unfill me (again) for 3 to 6 months to let it heal. I am so unhappy about this. So I have to go back up there (Eugene-75 miles away) on Tuesday and have the test. I know if they can find out what is wrong I won't have to go through this anymore. But I just don't want to be unfilled again for 6 more months. I guess I have no choice at this point. It's a wait and see for me.

I got my quilt frame. It's in 3 boxes. One is really heavy. We have them in the garage until we rearrange the room it will go in. I have to go back there to pick up the instruction manual and some templates they have for me.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Well hello! I am a fellow oregonian and just found your blog. I hope your reflex improves and that nothing is up with your band or esoph. I have a little bit of reflux but only when I eat in the evenings too late. Good luck!

Kathy, not the most encouraging news, but possibly a final solution. Sometimes it is very tough, but we do have to believe our doctors know best. Hang in there. Besides...what a quilt frame!!!! Now that is something to keep you busy for the next 6 months.

Whatever is best for you is what is needed. I hope all goes well. At least you are going to have that wonderful machine to keep you busy. It sounds like you are going to be busy.

Oh Kathy!
This plan to unfill you makes me sad for you! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping you can find a solution to the issue you are dealing with. But, I am happy that you are quilting.....what a work of art!
Onward!
