Dinner at Pappadeaux

Here I go again just lost all my writing. Saturday we went to Houston centrum and we also went to the Hilton Hotel and gone to the top 37 floor and there is a very nice restaurant were you can see all over Houston sky line. We also done some shopping at Macy’s and there is also a shopping mall under ground, To bad it’s closed on weekends. I have to go back. People here in Houston shop there and there is everything you need all underground cause the weather in the summer is way to hot for the Houstonians. The weather is very nice here and we are enjoying the sunshine here. Sunday we went to a flea market Sunny market it’s called. Well as you know I blend in very well, everyone was talking Spanish to me and I got good use of my Spanish this time....

Inhaler for Asthma

Another day at the hospital from 11:30- 17:30 I’m hospitaled out, Thanks for tomorrow Saturday. Got to see internal medicine and she gave me some medication for allergies and an inhaler for asthma. I also got magnesium vitamins cause I’m low on that and it’s not good for the kidney’s, and we don’t want that. I also got my EKG done and everything is ticking normal. I saw my oncologist again and he said that my bone scan is all good and everything is going real good for me now. I hugged him and thank him. He will see me again in March after the operation.

Genetic Testing

Today another long day at the hospital. 8:00 until 17:00. I got my nuclear stuff put in my veins and then 2 hours later a bone CT scan, after I saw the plastic surgeon Dr Mark Villa and he now told me he wont do the stomach operation but he will do it from the back shoulders and if he needs more skin then they will take it from my thigh. I will be hospitalized for 3 days that is much better. At first he said I will be operated on the 21 Feb, I got so happy but then we had a appointment with the surgeon Dr Babiera and she said oh I want the skin to heal from the radiation and it would take 4 weeks before I can operate on you. I got so disappointed and wanted to come back to Norway. Then the assistant came in and said you are scheduled for 28 Feb for surgery, and...

Pain in Right Foot

I made it thru the weekend fine and can now eat more. Monday morning I woke up with lots of pain in my right foot. The side of my big toe. At first I thought that I hit my toe on something and it was all red and swollen. I couldn’t stand on my foot. I ask the Dr to look at it and she thought it’s gout ( Jicht ) I had blood taken and xray done of my foot. She thinks it’s from me having diarrhea for so long and not drinking enough fluids. I got some medication from her and have to see her again on Wednesday and then she want to use a needle to take a sample of the fluid of the toe. My foot got real swollen and is very hot. I want to be normal again.. Paul is also not feeling good he can bearly walk from his sciatic nerv that is giving him a...
