Well the general consensus from Internal Medicine & GI Docs after all the tests is that the gallbladder with the stones is leading to a chronic Cholecystitis even without the inflammation. So the plan for now is surgery on Monday. Hopefully they are right and I will finally get rid of this constant nausea and epigastric pressure. Got sick today after a container of yogurt. Really doesn't matter what I eat. Maybe there is a light at the end of this really long tunnel. Hope your problems come to a good resolution too. Thanks for being here for me.

Oh sis, two Van songs at the top of your playlist - doesn't get much better. Maybe you knew that the bouquet of flowers on my page was from Manny and TD. It made me cry......
Congratulations on your award - and what a better person to be tied with. I am proud to call both you and Marie my friends.

Still struggling. Was another lousy day. Made fish for dinner and broccoli cheese soup and the boys loved it. I ate a 1X1 piece of fish and some applesauce and felt like I ate a huge dinner. Has indigestion, bloating and epigastric pressure. Blood sugars are good some days and some days not. Supposed to go to the Dr tomorrow but we are having a snow storm so don't know how the roads will be tomorrow. Tired. I didn't sleep well last night. Hope things are well with you.

Hmm...thank link for the document doesn't look active so I'm adding it here.

January 21 seems to work best for the 5 people that will be participating. So, we'll go with Friday, Jan 21 at 5:30.

I am using Skype to conduct the focus groups:

1. You'll need to download the software to your computer (there is a version for Mac and a version for PCs).
2. Once you set up your account please send me your account name so I can add it to my contacts.
3. A few days before the focus group I'll send everyone a reminder.
4. On Friday Jan 21 at 5:30 EST, you should log in to Skype.
5. I'll place the call so I can get everyone on the same line for a conference-style call.

If you are having any trouble with downloading Skype, let me know. I'm happy to help you troubleshoot. I've also attached an information sheet that is basically used as the consent form for your participation. 10-07-30-01%20Adult%20online%20focus%20groups%20info%20ltr%20v.10-13-10%20APPROVED.doc

Thanks so much!

Hey Robyn,
I'm working on getting a focus group together on a Tuesday or Friday at 5:30 EST in the next couple weeks. Would you be able and willing to be a participant?
