Things are looking better. The high blood pressure is responding to the new med little by little. My esopagus is settling down somewhat, and has been looked at and photographed, as well as my stomach. I have Barrett's esophagus. It's more common in men, but I'm one of the lucky women to have it.
I'm still pretty light-headed at times, and I really have no idea what's causing that. I just want to be back to normal, or some semblance of normal. I want to feel like getting on the exercise bike and going for short walks again.
Our temperatures are in the 80's, with high winds. We are having one of those weeks where we're going someplace almost every day! Yesterday was my endoscopy at 1:30; imagine how hungry I was by then! Cliff has a dentist appointment today around noon, and Thursday we have our annual visit from the nurse the medicare folks send around.
I think I probably need to be more careful of what I eat; I enjoy good old-fashioned food, lots of butter, and a little sugar added to everything. I like things flavored in bacon grease and fried in lard; I can't keep doing that. I'm not supposed to eat acidic things, so no more oranges. I love all fruit, though. I'm hoping I can always eat grapes. I enjoy vegetables. If watching what I eat helps keep me pain-free, I can do it.
And that's my report for now.
