FRIDAY FUNNIES*** UPDATED






NEEDED A LAUGH TODAY.. HAD THE BARIUM SWALLOW YESTERDAY DID NOT FEEL ALL THAT GREAT AFTERWARDS.. STILL FEEL YUCKY TODAY.. WAITING TO HEAR RESULTS..
SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME GO.. UHHMMM ... HOW COME IN THE XRAY ROOM THERE IS A BIG SIGN THAT SAYS
DO NOT POUR BARIUM DOWN DRAIN..
yet it is okay for me to drink that nasty stuff.. YIKES!
*****Got a call from the doctor this morning early.. everything is negative with the upper GI which is good but does not explain the burning issues..
The chest Xray showed that my heart was a little enlarged BUT that could also have been an issue with the way I was breathing at the time.. that I did not take a full breath when they told me to hold my breath.. so the doctor was not overly concerned however in light of my mother.. he is doing an echocardiogram on Monday and we are going to go ahead and do a CT scan of my abdomen to rule out anything else.. he is also going to do some lab work as well.. so.. if you have a minute on Monday say a little extra prayer for me.. that the old ticker is fine.. and I just have a little gastroenderitis or something like that.. the doctor said we still have not given the prilosec (2 a day ) enough time to work yet... Hopefully the CT will be fine too
Thats it for now.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND
WISH ME WELL
WISH YOU WELL TOO

Prayers coming your way.

Things will be fine. You have too many angels looking out for you.

Barium? Did I ever tell you about the time I had to drink it and wait 30 minutes before they'd do my scan?

And how I threw up in a bucket thingy and then poured it into a cup and offered to drink it because I had been told if I couldn't keep it down, they would shove an NG tube down into my belly?

Yeah. ER visit two days before they took out my gall bladder and a chunk of my liver. Good times. Very good times.

Much love to you. Got your email. I'm just sort of laying low these days.
