My ulcer is healed.
However there is still a red area. So I will still be cautious with what I consume. Thankfully all went well with the procedure. But I still abhor the IV and getting my blood pressure taken (bruises in both areas). I even got a reaction the adhesive on the monitor stickers. (Hubby says that I am delicate. LOL That is sweet of him, but I beg to differ.) They did another biopsy, the results will be back in about a week.

Okay so the takeaway is that I am getting better.
My new diagnosis is gastritis. There are still some issues to be resolved, but I can slowly and steadily move forward. Go lightly with the citrus and spicy and with the aspirin. (Why is it that I didn't get they weight loss symptom?) I know, because I ate to soothe. Crap!!! I still need to work on finding soothing alternatives.

I really appreciated my morning cup of coffee today...
and I can fill in the rest of the week's menu. At least I was able to bring "a" cup of coffee back. I was hoping to bring spicy back.
"Oh Well!"
This is, what is, and I can work with that.
