Catching up with Swizz...

Sometime in the last decade I started having what I lovingly refer to as my "Intestinal Issues".

Don't ask.
You do NOT want to know.

I saw doctor after doctor.
Was told time and time again to "eat more fiber."

Really?!?  
I CANNOT PHYSICALLY EAT MORE FIBER!

Whew.  That felt good!

So I have FINALLY seen a doctor who is going to try and figure out what is going on.

He is going to check the top end for my reflux.
Unfortunately it is NOT getting better despite being on uber high doses of meds.

He is going to check the bottom end.
(Thank goodness he's knocking me completely out!)

And hopefully (no not hopefully, PRAYERFULLY) he will figure out what is going on.
What HAS been going on.
FOR OVER 10 years!

And then maybe we can fix the reflux!

And maybe we can fix the other!

Oh, and I forgot to mention...I FINALLY went to a doc for my shoulder.  I mean an orthopod. 

And I have impingement of my shoulder.
And maybe a little cervical involvement thrown in for good measure.

I've been doing physical therapy.

And getting ultrasound and massage while I'm there.
(Do you think I can take the therapist home with me?  Pretty please!?!)

And my shoulder is getting better! 

And I'm going to put it to the test...this weekend...when we go skiing in Park City!

We'll be meeting my friend Baloney there.

I'm sure we'll have all sorts of fun stories to share!

I'm wondering if maybe you accidently swallowed a SWIZZle stick.

How's the shoulder now?
And any news on the scopes? If only you ate more fiber...
