I promise, this blog will not always be about my sweet wife and her health but I’ve had so many inquiries that I thought I’d give a quick update.
She is suffering from gastroperesis, a disorder that keeps her stomach from digesting food quickly enough. Bile has to go somewhere and in this case it is up. Several times a day it is up.
There is nausea and pain but she doesn’t complain.
She continues to work, mostly from home because throwing up is not something to behold in any office other than medical.
Dr. Blake McGowan, our family doctor, has mentioned a specialist in Memphis so we expect to be making a construction-delayed drive over soon.
There is a medicine that helps some with this condition, but it isn’t available in the USA.
I have to share this, on one of her really bad days Lisa Fischer, a long time friend, from B98 came to visit and she had us both laughing and smiling.
And her heart-felt and deeply personal prayer almost brought us to tears.You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
