    Well, I had my upper GI x-ray this morning. My MD made it sound like it was
    going to be this horrible process, but the only thing I didn’t like about it
    was that it was boring… Anyway, they couldn’t find any diseases or ulcers.
    However, they did determine that I have hyperperistalsis. Gee, I never would
    have guessed. The barium that I had to drink went from my mouth to my colon
    in 60 minutes. That’s a lot. So the only thing I can do is wait for the RAI to work its
    magic so that my GI tract will slow down. I am very thankful that it’s not
    a tumor or an ulcer. Unfortunately, I’m not a very patient person, so I guess
    I’ll just learn to be one. I’m sorry if it sounds like all I can do is complain.
    I’m just a bit frustrated. I can hear my late grandmother tellng me, “It
    will make you a stronger person.” :-) I don’t feel very strong right now.
    Thanks everyone.
