Health update.

Okay, if it's not one thing it's another. The docs have been over my last barium swallow results, compared notes and decided that although the leak is plugged I now have a stenosis where the shortened esophagus meets the recrafted stomach. Yeah, the same spot that's been giving us trouble the past two years. This is the reason I am having increasing trouble swallowing food and drink and why I hurl for no other apparent reason in the middle of meals every now and then. I am to go into the hospital to have this constriction stretched tomorrow morning. Keep me in your prayers. I'll try to have more posts later.

Your work is not yet completed. Watch your nutrition and rest.

On a side note, a good friend of mine is dying of throat cancer. I truly sucks as I haven't been able to understand a word he says since early December, and he was always one of my favorite people to talk to.

I wish you all the best and pray that you don't have what got my mother -- small cell carcinoma. It's a very aggressive form of cancer. I blame it on the fact that she was a smoker.
As others have said, you are needed.

As my grandmother used to say, "If you are going to act that way, I am not taking you to Howard Johnsons's".
