I'm thankful for todays blue skies and wispy clouds.
A lot of rain fell over the last few days, so the sunshine, blue skies and wispy clouds are most welcome. The light wind is welcome to help dry the waters. I am thankful that no one was hurt during the flash flooding.
I am thankful that I was able to make it through my upper endoscopy (EGD). I have asthma and sometimes the weather can make it difficult to breathe. The lady next to me in the holding area had an asthma attack and was not able to do her test. Thankfully her inhaler got her to breathing normal. I would have been in trouble if I had had an asthma attack. I left my inhaler at home.
My test went okay for the most part. The Nissen Wrap I had a couple of years ago is coming undone, which mean that acid reflux will probably be hitting me hard again some day. There was no stomach ulcer. The way I am feeling I thought I had the beginnings of one. There was a red streak that the doctor took a biopsy from and he took another from the lower part of my stomach. It will be a few days before I get the results. My stomach was not empty, so that means my stomach is slow to empty. He suggested I eat six small meals a day... I do that most days anyway. I am to decide if I want to try the drug Reglan. It has some not-so-good side effects and one is lip smacking... and when the med is stopped the lip smacking doesn't stop... now isn't that something to think about? I will have an appointment with the doctor in mid May.
Frank bought some dark room supplies. He got a hair cut... he was beginning to look a bit shaggy. We bought some bird seed at Tractor Supply and a wire brush... a $10 off coupon made it a bit cheaper to feed the birds. Then to the bank... I ordered me a new ATM card. My other one was deactivated after I hadn't used it in so long. We had a full day.
We came back home for our midday dinner between errands. Yesterday Frank cooked chicken leg quarters and I made up dumpling dough for chicken and dumplings. Having it all ready made dinner quick and easy to put together.
Carla over at A Mellow Life Is A Good Life asked if I had posted my biscuit recipe yet. Carla I haven't. I have it written out somewhere and I will try and find it. Maybe I can think to have Frank to take pictures next time I make biscuits. I dont' make them often like I used to... so don't hold your breath on seeing it any time soon :-)
