Visited the doctor yesterday.  Following a perfunctory physical, he prescribed me three weeks worth of Pantoprazole – which may sound like an Italian dish but is actually a proton pump inhibitor that serves as a short term treatment for erosive esophagus due to GERD.  If that turns out to be the underlying issue.  I popped one a half an hour before dinner last night and instantly felt better.   My stomach still feels full, even when I’m hungry, but I did sleep through the night – so that’s promising.  We’ll circle back on this in three weeks once my prescription taps out.

Did a little brainstorming today, hopped on a zoom to discuss an upcoming sci-fi comic book project, and received a long overdue payment for services rendered.  Also switched up my entertainment viewing from horror to television.  I watched the first season of The White Lotus (Is it just me who thought Paula was biggest villain?) and am about halfway through season 2.  If nothing else, the show really makes me want to vacation in Hawaii in Sicily.  Anyway, I’ll probably finish up the show tomorrow, then switch gears an start into some Holiday Horror films.  Recommendations?

Speaking of the holidays, Akemi, Suji and I will be heading to Montreal to spend Christmas with mom, sis, and their dogs.  Hopefully my stomach issues will be settled by then as my sister has booked some terrific restaurants.

  1. Hi Joe,

    Glad to hear the pills are help. Just curious, were there ever plans to have Pelops return and wreak havoc ? (In general, not just on the planet, I mean.)

  2. Also, it’s great the whole family is going to your mom’s for Christmas. I’m sure Suji will whip everyone into shape there in no time. 😉

  3. Pantoprazole. Yeah is that the one with the farfalle noodles for pasta salads? So cute. Well I hope they solve your problem. Feel better. (Guess it wasn’t worms. Did the doctor check for worms? You did ask if it could be worms, right?)

  4. Pants works great, but I don’t know if it’s recommended for long term use. I hate to say it, but you may have to adjust your eating habits. With mine, it turned out to be lactose intolerance and cutting back on milk products (and using only lactose-free milk) have made a huge difference.
