No more yard sales

Well, the last ever yard sale is over!  I think we made about 27 cents an hour.  If you include all the time it took to get ready for the darn thing.  That's a week I will never get back.  The to add insult upon injury it was Africa hot outside.  Truly a miserable day.  We are so adamant that this was the last one we even donated our card tables after it was over.

I just finished packing my brother's meals for next week and now I'm just waiting for Ron to get back from his errand and we will take them to Mike's house.

I saw two doctors last week.  I saw the orthopedist and he put me on a steroid pack for iliopsas tendonitis.  I just finished the pack on Thursday and have a little improvement.  I don't see the ortho again until August.  I also saw my regular doctor and she believes I may have a bleeding ulcer.  I've been losing blood and I'm severely anemic so she is sending me to a GI to be scoped.  Oh hooray sounds like fun.

My stomach is on fire 99% of the time and hurts.  I'm taking something to coat it before meals but I can't tell if it is helping or not.  What's weird is if my brother is having a bad day all I have to hear is his voice and my stomach lights up like a torch.  So I'm really ok with seeing a GI and getting to the bottom of the problem.

Well, life goes on.  Stay inside and avoid the heat..... my best tip for the day!

Make sure your regular doctor and the GI Doctor know that you are on steroids and any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory such as aspirin or ibuprofen.
