It is Thursday morning, St. Bridget, Oct 8th. Yesterday, I went to an internist and gastronomist. I go for an upper GI today. Am very weak and it will mean drinking a liquid. The processes is 4 hours. I hope I can get through it.
As much as I try to eat or drink, my bowls react with so much gas that I have to walk and walk for the gas to pass.
Here in California I am trying so hard to eat, but it is not working. Everyone tries to get me to eat something. The gastronomist said to drink liquids only. I drank a small amount of a milk shake last night and it caused great blockage in my guts. Finally some of the gas passed and I was able to sleep till 4 this morning, with the help of a sleeping pill.
Thank you all for your prayers, love and sacrifices. My bottom hurts to sit on because I have lost so many pounds. I have no pain, just weakness and discomfort.
Everyone is treating me so much much love and charity. Thank you everyone especially the family I am staying with. May God reward them.
May God help us and have mercy on us sinners, and Mary and the angels and saints help us. I love and pray for you all and try to offer up what I am going through, but it is very hard to pray in this condition. So far I have said Mass everyday in silence.
