Scotty and Carolyn, good to hear from you.
I am eating more and more solid foods VERY slowly. I was also able to have some thin crust pizza - and man it was good. I had one slice and at about half of the whole piece and then just ate the toppings off of the rest of my portion :) :) :).
Janice, don't be discouraged - we all heal differently. You sound like you are on your way and that is very encouraging. I still take a little nauseu and pain meds before bed since my discomfort level still tends to kick in a bit in the evening.
I am still having odd back and shoulder pains. I'm generally afraid of chiropractors but maybe I should give it a shot. I have my follow up appointment with Dr. Louie this week so I'll see what he says about it.
As you know I am now working again and every day is still very tiring. I start fading about mid afternoon but I somehow manage to hang in there until 5 and then I head for home and I'm in bed by 9:30 which is just about now.....so with that being said, I wish you all continued love and health.
