Grandma to the rescue. So glad you caught it in time.

I went to Winthrop this morning. I have been having a hard time eating lately. They food just doesn't want to go down. It gets stuck around my chest area after the third bite and just sits there slowly working it way down. But while it is doing that it is very uncomfortable. So they had the eating therapist come and watch me eat lunch. I had an egg salad sandwich and vegetable barley soup along with a glass of whole milk. Sure enough after a couple of bites of the sandwich, I stopped eating it and went to the soup. I took two spoonfuls and that was all I could get down. The therapist thinks it may be by my esophagus may be scarred from all the heartburn over the years. So I will be going for a barium Xray to see what is happening. I do take meds for the heartburn, but I just may need something stronger than what I am on. So we will see. Just what I need. Another arse ache. Getting old is hard work.

Question

Oh that's awful Addie....not being able to eat properly. Are you hungry but can't or have lost your appetite in the process? Would something soothing like cream/milk based dishes slip down easier?

I waited on a cable guy. he arrived & fixed my remotes/etcetera. I spoke to my Mom earlier, so as to chit-chat & discuss pricing on pens & notebooks. I cleaned, spoke to a few people, & soon, i'll be shopping. we shifted the time regarding when we ought shop. gonna see if she is hungry; maybe we could get a quick dinner, too.

You're right, it's no picnic. But like my Mom would say, it beats the alternative. Hope they fix your swallowing issue soon.

Finishing up with a baseball lover's Afternoon Delight - a day game. It's in the 9th inning; when it's over I'll be heading out the door with my SIL to do a bit of grocery shopping.

The little guy is off to a fun weekend with his other side of the family. I have to wait for another week before I get him again. Can't wait.

I called his mother and told her I was taking him to have it checked out. (my uncle died of blood poisoning at the age of 19, I also had it in a thumb, the doctor said if we had waited 1 more day , they would have taken the thumb off).

I'm glad you caught it JoAnn!
