Brainz. I Don't Haz Them.
Gall Bladder, (Healthy/Not Healthy y/n?) I Haz
Also Gullet. (Healthy/Not Healthy y/n?) Yeah I Haz One of Those, Too.


So where are we now?

One stress echo test, set up for Friday.

Yay, questions about my heart. Just ... yay.

One endoscopy, set up for later this month, and one gall bladder ultrasound, set up for ASAP.

Yay, for having a big old tube stuck down my throat to check and see if I have ulcers, duodenitis, or anything else that is causing the constant reflux, acid stomach and inability to eat anything but cottage cheese, low fat milk and eggnogs.
Yay for possible gallstones. Yeah, the doctor just called to say, yeah, uhm ... maybe gallstones, because maybe that's what's causing the constant reflux, acid stomach and etc. etc. etc., even if it's a bit atypical, so ... yes, call ... TOMORROW.

I've lost 13 pounds in 25 days, 6-8 of them in the last 7-8 days. In the not fun way. The real not fun way. And, oh boy, does not eating making your brain work bad. You want OM NOM NOM, and you get ZOMBIE BRANE MAGNIFICENCE.

Oh, the car? The transmission? Haven't been able to get it in. BB's got a miserable cold and I appear to be eroding from the inside. So, not so focused on the transmission.

On the other hand, here's the one thing that made me smile today, courtesy of lindenharp  - a rec for this story, "Trying to Communicate" by sam_storyteller . This is the Best Story EVAR. At least for tonight.

Eep, eep, and eep.

Here's hoping all proves to be easily identified and treated.

Your hope and mine, my dear. Otherwise, I fear I may be like the wonderful one-hoss shay and just *poof* not be there anymore. Heh.

Ack! I hope it's something easy to find and easy to fix. And I don't mean the transmission, either (though that would be okay too).

Fix kaffyr and the car alike would be wonderful. I am hoping we'll find that the car problem is a matter of a leaky hose. If it's actually a leak in the transmission ...eurgh.

Oh dear. My mother has had an endoscopy several times in her life and I know it's not a pleasant experience. However, here's hoping all these tests find answers that are solvable, and I hope you feel better soon!


And I hope the car trouble isn't too serious when you can get to it.

I've scheduled the endoscopy, and a couple of other tests, and I'm hopeful we'll figure out what's going on. Thanks for the good thoughts!

Oh, eew.
I do wish you would stop all this, or at least slow down enough to catch up.

I can assure you that laporoscopic gall bladder removal is almost trivial. So I hope it's something that amenable to technology.

Right now, I'm really, really hoping that my problems stem from the gall bladder, because, yes, it is a fairly minor procedure, and I can follow up with good eating habits, etc.

Oh, no! I hope you breeze through the tests and that it's something really simple and transient that fixes itself up.

Unfortunately it probably won't fix itself - but it could be fairly easily fixed surgically, on an out-patient basis almost, if it turns out to be my gall bladder. That's what I'm shooting for, anyhow. Thanks for the good wishes!
