It's May!

There's not usually a lot of weekend progress in hospitals. Usually another doctor you may not even know is covering for your doctor, and he or she is generally just there for emergencies.

Yesterday, I had different kind of experience. The on-call doctor for my gastroenterologist changed my medicine. He took me off Reglan and gave me a newer drug called "zelnorm" or something like that.

The new medicine seems to be 1- working better than the Reglan and 2- not making me so weepy and depressed. I'm eating a little more, and I'm hopeful this switch may help move me along.

Tomorrow I have an EGD (endoscopy) scheduled for around noon. We'll see what Dr. Kumar finds with that.

Hurrah for progress! All fingers around here are crossed for you. Glad things seem to be moving forward for you again.

We love you, Jim!

That's funny, I thought Zelnorm was the name of the fellow who set out to conquer the Earth on a episode of Buck Rogers.

Here's to hoping that "April showers bring May flowers." Keep up the progress!

Hi Jimmy, WooHoo! I smell victory in the air. I'm happy for the good news and of course we will continue the prayers. Keep fighting the good fight!
