No, I'm not dead. Yet.

Wow, I can't believe it's been a whole week since my last post. Which, by the way, was for a contest by Proverbs 31 Ministries and Lysa Terkeurst. I didn't win, but I got lost of nice comments. So I think it must have meant something to a few folks. Sweet!

I really wanted to comment about one of them in particular, but I'm afraid that between working every day but one since my last post and suffering a maddening, debilitating case of acid reflux, it just hasn't happened. It never fails that sickness comes after normal hours of operation. Or on a weekend. Or when you're the only swing shift person on the schedule and you have to go to work. Even on the government holiday.

Yep, that's me. I feel like I've had something stuck in my throat for a full week now. And it just sucks. Period.

It's making me nauseous. It made me try to sleep almost sitting up in bed. Not good for curled-up-in-the-fetal-position sleepers like me. It made me skip my morning coffee 2 days in a row, and even that didn't help. So I won't be foolish and skip my coffee again. The headache is MASSIVE! Ahh, sweet caffeine, how I love thee :-)

Some over-the-counter stuff hasn't really helped, so I finally broke down and went to the doctor today. More pills and an order for an Upper GI. If you don't know, that means that they want to stick a tube with a camera down my throat and have a nice look around. Um, not fun. No no. Might make for some fun blog pics, though. :-)

So, last night my caffeine-less headache sent me to my bed early. My hubby said that he knew I felt bad because I didn't even knit OR turn on the computer. Yeah, it was bad.

That was after he told me how big the dark circles had gotten under my eyes, too. Ain't he a gem? :-P He really knows how to make a girl's day. That's OK, my poor boss keeps giving me the sad face and telling me how obvious it is that I feel bad. That's just a sweeter way to tell me that I look like crap. I love her!

Anyway, I think I'll try the new pills for a few days and see what happens. Because blog pics or not, I don't really want a camera shoved down my throat. And if I don't get better soon my supporters just might kill me with compliments...:-)


  1. I'm so sorry you feel bad, but apparently you are quite funny when you do feel bad because you had me laughing. Yes, I suppose I was laughing at your expense... sorry. :)

    I do hope you feel better soon. I hope the dark circles go away and your "supporters" stop with the compliments. (It's like asking a pregnant lady if she's having twins!) Ha!

    Anyway, feel better soon!

  2. Ugh....sorry you are feeling bad! My husband had the same thing done about 2 years ago (except they did BOTH ends) because of some gall bladder issues. It wasn't NEARLY as bad as he thought it would be. They gave him some sedatives and he didn't even remember it after he came back to the world of the living.

    My son has some similar issues and the last time he had a "scope around" they had him swallow a pill with a camera in it to get the images!!!! How's THAT for advanced technology!

  3. May God bring healing to your body!

    Blessings to you and yours,

  4. Ahhhhh - Caffiene - the cocaine of Christians!


So, what do you have to say?
