Sorry to hear about
the hernias. Esophageal problems can be bad. I hope you have a good GI guy that can take care of them. Maybe they can fix them surgically, it might be worth it. My dad has the sliding one and he is constantly battling with gastric reflux and its bad because if your liver is bad, you can die from GERD--my grandmother did. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Sorry the HE reared its ugly head. Sort of more of a vacation than you counted on? Well I hope you are feeling better soon and that you get a chance to rest up after your trip.
