Son of a Glitch

Jim had an ok night, though it's pretty hard to sleep in the hospital. The nausea crept back in around the edges over the evening hours, though it was by no means as severe as before. There are periods where he is not nauseated at all. Jim relates that he can't really interpret how he's feeling since it's been ages since he felt like himself. He did eat and drink today, after Dr. Evers re-organized his medicine to make eating more feasible. Jim might have something called a gastric-emptying test (I think) tomorrow. This examines stomach emptying as a function of muscle activity as opposed to the other tests which looked for obstruction.

On the plus side, what a beautiful day.

As much as I appreciate the updates, I appreciate the clever 'blog titles' almost more. "Son of a Glitch" indeed.

I hope Jim very soon has such an influx of good health that he forgets what it was like to be sick for so long.

Finally, yes, today was very beautiful (and I was stuck inside). But tomorrow will be... Thursday!... and you know that that is my favorite day of the week because of UB.

Thank you for keeping us informed.

Hi Judy, We know how discouraging these setbacks can be we are hopeful this will be the last of them. Ed no longer remembers how it feels to feel good either, his situation is a little different than Jimmys', but we are forever hopeful. I know how hard it is to be the caregiver so we will continue to have both of you in our prayers. Beautiful days can make anything seem a little better. Keep fighting the good fight!
