I underwent a 3 hour upper G.I. and swallow study/x-ray yesterday, which showed that there was NO obstruction anywhere, and then my surgeon's assistant removed my feeding tube.
The surgeon said that he didn't know what could be causing so much acid reflux, but that maybe now that the tube is out, it would improve. Well, IT HAS ! I slept so much better last night, WITHOUT the saliva seeping down my esophagus and airway !
And, right now, I'm enjoying a bowl of chicken and rice soup, filled with crumbled crackers, and it is going down SO EASILY ! I am just flabbergasted ! (Forgive me, Lord, I should not be amazed by your mercy and grace at this point, but I am still humbled by it !)
2014 is going to be a FANTASTIC year !
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
