Good Morning friends! Yes, I am still alive. ;) I have a stomach scope scheduled for September 4th. This is a long, slow, painful process getting over these ulcers. I continue to take 16 tsp of Gavascon daily and two Nexium also. Turns out it was stress, changing pain pills(all three have slight stomach upset possibilities),and guess what?! Bananas are BAD for ulcers! I was eating mainly bananas EVERY day for over a week!! I thought these were bland and okay for me. So, the nausea is mostly gone. The burning has gotten barely better. My Aunt had ulcers at the beginning of summer. It took her 6 weeks to fully recover! Oh great! A few weeks to go then still. =(
I could not stitch at all for the first two weeks. I read. A LOT! I read almost the entire years' worth of The Word Among Us. I just finished Beverly Lewis' latest book The Secret Keeper. I really liked this book a lot. I have never been disappointed with a single one of her books through the years.
We went to the local antique mall in July, Brian, Madeleine and I. I found my second, wooden recipe box for $4.00. The first one I found at the thrift store for a dollar last year. This is the lovely freebie I stitched and mounted inside the lid.
Here is a picture of my two constant fuzzy companions. They have been with me at all times during these rough days.
