Monday Monday.

                      

Good Evening, first of all would like to say thank you for all your good wishes about by digestion. Thought I was better yesterday but when I went to bed last night was awakened again with heartburn.  First thing this morning I phoned to try to get an appointment with my Doctor or any other Doctor was told the nurse could deal with this problem. Not happy, I took myself along to the surgery, well I should say Stuart took me and waited to see said nurse.  After I told her my tail of woe she said this was not her field of expertise and she would ask the Doctor for his opinion. After a few minutes she returned to say the Doctor would see me. Funny there were no appointment earlier this morning.  Doctor thinks it is excess acid in the oesophagas and has given me tablets and said if it does not clear to come back so heres hoping.
We managed to get out Christmas Tree up and the cards have started to arrive so the house is beginning to look very festive. Still got a few bit and pieces to do yet and will get them done just as soon as.  Card are all written and posted. Thats about it for tonight weather is bad again today if anyone mentions water shortage next year well what can I say it has been raining for weeks it seem.  Have a goo evening. Used photobucket for the first time so fingers crossed. 

                                    Love,

Hello Joan,

I have Gastric Reflux too and it can be very painful at times.  It was bothering me a lot a few weeks ago but it cleared up as quickly as it it came on.  I really should get back to the doctor for some more of those tablets just in case.  I`m sure the tablets will work for you, they are really good if they`re the same as the ones I`ve had in the past.

Your doctor is probably correct. Some people makes lots of acid, I know I am one of them and my mother was the same.  Lovely when the cards start to arrive, so nice to see something cheerful on the doormat.  Oh,you can bet they will say we are having a drought next summer.  If they caught all this excess water there would not be a problem.

So pleased the Dr. got to see you and hope the medication helps you. I have Oesophegus Reflux Disease and i know it can be very painful and frightening at times.. I take Raberprazole and Gaviscon for mine and i was determined to lose some weight and i did. I changed my diet and lost 1 stone in weight, which i think has helped me a great deal, because i don't get the severe pains i was getting in the summer this year, i have had some pain but, not severe...

I think photo-Bucket is so much easier to use...Merry Christmas to you and i hope you will be pain free...

Best wishes...

Astra!

I am please to hear that you are gettig better.  As for a water shortage, what can I say, we too are having more than what would be termed 'our fare share of water'.

Having said that, just in case I cannot get back to you for a while, my family and I wish to send you all the best for the festive season and wish you all well for the coming New Year.

By for now,

John.

Looks like you've got on alright with photobucket :-)  Glad you got to see the doctor even though you didn't have an appointment.  Hope the tablets have worked.
