EGD and finally some information

Saturday, January 28, 2017

I had another procedure completed this week. It was an EGD. Its my third one ever. I used to dread them because I was fully awake the two times before but this TIME, they gave me propofol and I slept through the whole thing. It was great. Such a relief!

They came back with some results this time. Copious amount of bile in my stomach. I had not eaten in 12 hours and there was a ton in there. So now I've been given Questran. I was nervous about taking it but I've tried a small dose today and so far I'm seeing some benefits. My stomach is starting to feel calmer that it has all week. I'm always nervous about taking new medicines but I've read that it has helped alot of people. The doctor also saw my hernia. Still there.

This has been a pretty good week for me and a bad one at the same time. The bad is my husband signed a contract back in 2015. The agreement stated that if he completed so many hours of Project Management work along with his other duties and passed his exam, he'd receive his raise. Well he did all the above and they still haven't given us a raise. I don't understand where this is fair. His associate who missed more than his sick and vacation days received a raise last year. He doesn't nearly have to do the amount of work as my husband, not even close and he received his requested raise right away, before he even began completing the work that he was promoted to do. In fact, my husband was making up the slack until the guy was fully trained. Now that guy only makes 7 grand less than my husband and I'm angry. My husband has a four year, he has had to travel all over the US several times a year, never misses a work day unless he's extremely ill, never complains, always gets the job done, is highly demanded for work amongst his colleagues, is noticed by the CFO for the long lists of tasks that are delegated to him (but the CFO does nothing about it) and I could keep going.....

I want to persuade my husband to go for his Masters degree. Its already paid for by the GI Bill and its only going to make his resume look even better. Then maybe he can explore new job options with his new title. I hate what that company has done to him.

I have a part-time job that I do while my son is in school. Its not enough though we are two months behind on most of our bills. The raise would catch us up and I would be able to finally begin to pay off stuff.

I have wanted to own and operate my own business for a long time but I wasn't sure what kind of business I've wanted to do. I've been selling items online for a while. There hasn't been a lot of money in it though. Its highly competitive and acquiring products can be difficult and expensive. I have found an opportunity that I want to pursue. I have to save up $10 grand for it though. Its really not a whole lot considering starting my own business. I just need to figure out a way to make it happen.

I completed another workout today with my Kettlebell. I'm very close to completing 15 sets of 15 kettlebells in under 15 minutes.

    I'm glad you are getting some help finally. I hope the new med works. This may be just what you need!

    I hope the promised raise is coming soon. Do they give him a reason why they are not abiding by the contract? I hope he can get some answers/

    It would be really nice it you could start your own business.
