Blessed

For many things I know I am blessed. I am blessed for my God, my family, my friends, and most of all, my health. I have had some tests this week, an iodine IV test, and a barium swallow test. I kept having this sensation of food being stuck in my throat. The ENT scoped my throat (not a pleasant experience)..went down my nose and throat, and all looked clear. Then, he ordered the tests.
I will get all results back soon, but when I did the barium test today they informed me that it does look like I suffer from esophageal reflux. What the doctor had assumed. I was put on medications a little while ago without much relief as of yet.
Hoping they can get the medication to where it needs to be soon.
When I came home from the hospital this morning after the barium test, my husband took care of me. He took today off from work so I wouldn't have to go by myself. I am glad for that.
Since being home, I have had stomach cramps and have been laying down most of the day. That stuff will wipe you out!
I hope I never have to drink that stuff ever again! Just the thought of it makes me feel ill!
I thank the Lord that if the only findings they come up with is reflux, I know how blessed I am indeed.
After a little while, I heard the mailman pass the house..my son brought in the mail and was so excited to see two envelopes for me!
One was a chart I had been searching for ....thank you dear sweet Jolene for sending it my way!!
Another was a chart I ordered ...I fell in love with it when I saw how beautiful it was when my dear friend Hazel stitched it up!
It is called Dandy Dreams by Silver Creek Samplers.
 Somehow getting stash in the mail makes one feel so much better! :)
Now back to resting up...
More soon....
