ups and downs...

So it has been a busy couple of weeks.
That said, I have a bunch of stuff I am excited about and a few frustrations to vent also.
I had my endoscopy and found out...drum roll... not much.
Well, the good news, no ulcers, no esophagus damage and my stomach lining looks good. Which I am very grateful for these positive things.
The bad news is that the muscle that connects my esophagus to my stomach is "loose", now I understand that I was completely under sedation for this procedure and the diagnosis, so I am going off what Llama told me later but really, "loose" is the best term we could come up with? :) But I suppose that is the layman's terms and trust me, I am no doctor.
But it has been a hassle to get my new prescription, so I am just going to not worry about it this weekend and just wait until my follow up next week...sometimes even I have to admit defeat.

Other things going on have been better, I always like to get the venting done first and then go for the good stuff!

Secret Pal 8
Started today! Yeah!
I have the best upstream and downstream! This is my first Secret Pal and I am so excited and a little nervous (I want to be a good SP), I got the cutest penguin e-card from my SP last Saturday and boy do I love me some penguins (actually most black and/or white animals...pandas, polar bears, seals, zebras...I guess with a childhood nickname like Panda, something had to come out of it). Please see the penguin above for my cute e-card! Thank you so much Llama Llama Duck!!!!
I also got a yummy recipe for skor blondies and if I can get moving tonight,I plan on making a batch to bring to work tomorrow. Yum. And as my SP had tempted me with chips of all kind, I have been having so much fun planning for my downstream SP... and thankfully since I have a great SP, it is inspiring me to think up fun things for my downstream.

now I am feeling better!
and to make it even better tomorrow is FRIDAY!

Yay, you figured out pictures! Go you! Glad you're enjoying the spoilage so far... Sorry about the health troubles though -- that sucks. I hope you are able to get some good treatment!

Your SP,
