I saw the doctor today for the final "Down the Throat" test sequence.
said it would not be much fun and he was certainly correct. The test
took a long time, as painful and largely completely disgusting. There
was a small video camera and a larger tube all the way down to my
stomach. Between these two instruments the surgeon was able to map the
entire inner surface of everything. In all it took about 5 hours ( as
had to be awake and doing things) but some of that time was spent
and cleaning up when I had to throw up several times.
The doctor said that there is no question at all that I must have the
surgery and that I do have the ailment he talked about. So it looks
August 29th will be the day.
Aside from the above Carol and I are free to take off on our road trip.
So we are going to leave in the morning and scamper Northward as the
spirit moves us. With a "must be back date" so far away time is not
necessarily a problem.
We will take pictures of things we see and I will send them along.
Best to all
