Foursquare Connection, Day 1

Yesterday ended quite badly, starting with arriving to my hotel room at about 2:00 am Columbus time. That in and of itself was not entirely a bad thing. It was buffered by a great conversation with a guy I sat with on the plane from Chicago to Columbus and a shared cab ride with one […]

Waiting For A Jet Plane, Among Other Things

Sitting at Chicago O’Hare Airport, waiting for my 9:05 (7:05 PST) to board and take off at 11:00 (9:00 PST), which is midnight in Columbus, Ohio, my destination.

Time Warp, Part 5

It’s late night on Easter Sunday. We enjoyed a terrific weekend of Easter celebrations at church. This year, I sang in the choir, the first time I’ve done so in at least 15 years. It was a real blast connecting with the choir partners! I even got to sing one of my Easter favorites as […]

This morning, a story ran on NBC’s Today Show. It was about a young lady named Gentrie Hanson, who has gastroparesis, the same rare condition I’ve been diagnosed with. You can click here to watch the feature. While my experience is mine alone, it’s always good to know that you’re NOT alone! I also haven’t […]

It’s Not A Tumor

Saw my doctor at Cedars-Sinai today for results from last week’s tests, which all showed no abnormalities. That’s good news! From here, he sees no reason for further testing. He is calling what I have “post-infectious gastroparesis”, believing that it was most likely brought on by whatever virus I was fighting the week after Christmas. […]

Good Weekend

The long, but good, weekend, started too early for my taste on Friday morning when the alarm went off at 5:00 am. Colleen, Jonathan and I headed out at 6:30 for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. I went through my first test with them in this gastrointestinal journey I’ve been on for the last 7 months. The […]
