Well, I had an endoscopy Monday morning, and the pathology report came back yesterday. I have an infection of the stomach lining – Gastritis. So now I’m on antibiotics again, and still taking the Carafate. I decided on my own to drop all the supplements for now, and just take my prescription meds – which is a lot!
I felt lousy yesterday, but I’ve waked up this morning feeling better. I’ll know when I eat breakfast in a bit if the medicine has had a chance to calm down the stomach lining any. They gave me a photo of it when I had the endoscopy, and it looks raw alright, so I can’t expect it to clear up overnight. I sure hope I feel better by Christmas, at least.
I’ve been swamped with requests for help finding lovies in time for Christmas, and I’m sure that has put some stress on me. But it feels so good to help someone find what they could not find on their own that I can’t stop. My inbox was not as full this morning, and it should start slacking off until after Christmas now, as there’s hardly enough time to get anything in time for Santa to deliver it.
I’ve been so busy on the computer, plus really not feeling up to doing any cleaning, that I haven’t put up any Christmas decorations, yet. Hopefully, I can get that done today. All the big presents for our grandchildren have been bought since Thanksgiving (online, of course), so now I need to wrap them. We still need to put some more things in everyone’s stockings, too. That takes the most time of all. All these Christmas doings that still need to be done puts stress on me, too. So I am trying my best to just go with the flow and get done what I can. There have been some years when I was wrapping on Christmas Eve, so I have time yet! LOL
We did go to my Sunday School class’s Christmas party and to the Open House at our preacher’s house for the Deacons and their family, so I’ve had a chance to party a little. I took a sugar free dessert to the party, so I could have something sweet without upsetting my glucose readings. I didn’t feel like eating much, but I enjoyed going.
So, I continue to hope that I will feel better by Christmas, and still trying to get as much done as I feel like doing for now.
