UK Visa... check!

Picked up my UK visa today :-) Very excited for my trip. Going to visit one of my bestest friends in the world Louzanne and also my bestest aunt Annelie. Departing on the evening of the 10th of Oct, and arriving back on the 22nd. So pretty much 10 days of exploring London!!! Will be my third visit to London, LOVE the city. Louzanne will be returning to SA the day after me (she's been working there for the past year), so hopefully I'll get to see a bit more of her once she's back as well. The pic below is one taken of us +- 12 years ago when we were all young and innocent! It's a privilage to have life-long friends like her (we've been friends since we were about 5 year old when stood out as some of the few Afrikaans kids in a Jewish pre-primary school!) in my life!

 
 
On a medical note, did the Barium Swallow test on Tuesday (was supposed to do it later in the month but after my horrible night on Sunday I couldn't wait). Must be the first time that I'm disappointed that a test gave a result that is NORMAL! The radiologist said that she sees no sign of reflux and everything looks normal. She thought since I have the reflux/heartburn at night, maybe when I sleep and everything relaxes and stomach acid moves up where it shouldn't. So waiting to hear what exactly the next step is. Really hope this can be fixed before more rejection happens! It's not the actual heartburn that bothers me so much as the fact that I know it causes rejection :-(

Alice, you don't know me but I've been following your blog for several years after I started following Tricia Laurenson. Anyway, I'm a grandma in California and just wanted to encourage you to check out www.brendawatson.com when you have some time. Truly, I don't work for her and have no connection. Several years ago I was struggling mightily with digestive issues and the doctors were no help. Her program literally saved me. My issue isn't reflux, but she covers everything in her books. A little research on her site should point you to something that can help. Just felt the need to share this as I can sense your frustration. I've been there! Best wishes and have a great time in London!
