Making Progress

It has been a miserable few weeks, but I think I am about to the end of it all. All of my tests are in and it looks like I have a giant hiatal hernia. One third of my stomach is in my chest. No wonder I've been hurting. Don't know what the treatment is going to be. I think it's just good to know what it is. The cat scan also showed diverticulitis. So I guess that is going to mean a diet change. I might go to a acupuncturist when I am done with the specialists and see what the ancient Chinese would do. I have 3 weeks until my next DR. appt, so I might try some things on my own. I think once they decided it wasn't cancer the Dr. relaxed and gave me nothing new.

Business is really picking up. I am feeling a little stressed, so much to get done. Most of it's behind the scenes, but really important to do. I am just glad I have work. Our Real Estate market seems to be picking up. I hope it holds for awhile.

If you want to see what's going on in Relief Society check out the blog,; we have so many good things going on. Also be sure to try the sauce recipes on it. They are fabulous, especially the salmon and chicken ones. If you haven't tried the chicken salad receipe Lauri posted, give it a try, it's great.

I am really looking forward to Conference weekend. I am going to veg out the entire time.

Glad to hear things are getting figured out. It sure seems diverticulitis runs in the family. Glad they caught that. Let me know if you need help with ANYTHING!
Love ya.

Glad to know it's something treatable. What is the treatment??? Stomach in chest? I think I may have that, but it's just because my stomach is so big... LOL... not!

Acupuncturists are good. They know lots of odd stuff that seems to help with things.
But I think you definitely have to change your diet and begin doing the E word!

Love you! Breathe. It'll all be fine.

Well, that's a pain. But I don't need to tell you that. Can't they just pull your stomach back where it's supposed to be and stitch it in place?? Or maybe you can just stay a 42 D!!! Hope you can get it all better. Love you.
