Finally getting to the heart of things

Well the VA Hospital called me and I will be in the hospital for the EGD next Wed the 24th. They said I will need to have zero anything including water before they see me. That sucks, no coffee. If your over 50 and you have had your colonoscopy, this is the same thing except from the mouth end. LOL

EGD is because I have trouble swallowing solid food short of grinding it to pulp and even that can cause a problem. They xrayed a week or more ago and found nothing now they will use a camera to look at my esophagus to determine what is restricting it.

Down With a Cold

I know I know its been a few days.   Nothing much is new, I still do the blood test but once a month now not every week.  I still have something plugging my esophagus, they ran xray's but found nothing.   Next should be the camera down the throat.  Trying to decide to go see my doctor or the local witch doctor to get some kind of cold assistance.

Winter is playing its games

We get rain snow mix, we get sunshine, than freezing temps, and right back to rain, now sunshine again.  Good grief.  Its going to be a long winter.
Been working out every other day on my wii machines wii fit program.  It feels great to be able to do anything.  After one week I have lost two lbs.  Which is a wonder since I have been stuck on the same  weight for a good month now.

The Latest News

Our RV is all ready for winter and none too soon.  We are expecting snow some time in the next three days.
Drs have put me on once a month blood tests now instead of once a week.
I set up the wii machine yesterday so I can start exercising indoors. 
My youngest daughter is with child, her first and she is having some complications.  I pray all goes well for her.
We have to take our RV in the first of the summer to Grand Junction, Colorado to have our calipers replaced on a recall.  We plan to do some touring of Colorado as long as were already in the state.  I hope to catch a lot of the historical native American sites.
Well that should about bring me up to date.

Been a Busy Week

We went to a funeral on Monday, over the mountains to the North East to do my blood INR (blood thinner), than over the other mountains to the North West today to see my VA counselor.  And to add to the driving 200 to 300 miles round trip, we had to drive in heavy rains.

Drs Report

Dr says I have low potassium and high heart beats.  I have to cut my coffee by 1/2 and start eating more fruits like bananas, oranges, and pineapples.  I am also happy I am finally holding my weight to the first 50 lbs loss point.  So hope to lose another 50 in the next year or two.
