Good Morning Jem and Everyone. Just saw a picture of the bride and groom. Nice looking couple.
The caucus has begun. YIPPEE...
I started to write “prayers for Iowa” but stopped. I don't think there is any good answer available today. Prayers for USA is really much more necessary. God help us all.
Things are rough at the moment, but the First lady and I will make it through. Heck, I'm not getting shot at, so things aren't that bad.
Methinks 2012 will be a much better year...Lord, are you listening...?
You are in my prayers.
I need some advice. I have had a recurring problem for a number of years. It doesn’t kick in in warm weather. Most of the time I had bronchitis preceeding. Neither of those two are present all the time.
My breathing sort of cuts off. My chest feels as if there is a band on it. If I am talking or singing, I have to stop, pause, and then I can restart. Sometimes I need to cough once or twice. It is a dry cough.
No fever is present.
I have the problem now but no drip.
I HAVE SEEN A DOCTOR, actually several, ABOUT THIS.
The docs here in the US have ruled out asthma, gastric reflux and a variety of other stuff. When they did these tests, my CBC numbers were all within normal parameters.
The doc in Papua did a chest x-ray, and then an ultra-sound of my abdomen. At least there, in that experience I received a diagnosis: CHRONIC APPENDICITIS and gave me instructions to AVOID VEGETABLES! They didn’t want to remove the appendicix and I still eat my peas.
So, I need some ideas. I am having the condition reoccur now. Fingernails, lips extremities are all pink (showing adequate blood flow and therefore enough oxygen.
Please brainstorm for me.
Prayers are up for it, anyway.
Do you have copies of your medical records in Papau? It sounds like you need to see an endocranologist and a complete physical. Be sure the Dr knows about your lack of O2 when talking or singing. That’s my suggestion. Have the Dr check your diaphram.
I may just give that one a try or perhaps a white peach sangria.
No, but it will make you not care about it. And that is the important thing.
Thanks. I’m glad to see you still kicking around. Prayers are most important.
Prayers the situation will get better. Yes, I think 2012 will be better.
Yes, but you need to funnel the martini through the hole in the olive to the affected ear.
An endocrinologist? What is that specialty?
I don’t have the records from Papua. It was at Rumah Sakit Dian Harapan (Hospital Hope Lamp - it is a catholic hospital).
I have told the docs about the stopping of breath. Generally, I start there. The earlier US docs, well, also the Papuan docs, did check the diaphram. They said it was good.
For an earache?
For anything. It’s good all the time.
An endocrinologist studies the glands and/or organs which produce certain important internal secretions to keep the body running properly. There’s something goofy going on inside of you that needs attention..see one. If the hospital in papau is computer connected they can forward copies of your visits.
Good to see you too, S/Sgt. Missed you.
