Jean!!! You're back! I've missed ya. What... if anything did you find out? Will this doctor be able to help you? How'd you handle the drive, and did you have a good time? Wow...told you we had that "Aries" thing in common. If I've been on a medication (Ranitidine-he says it is the best medicine) for the hernia for two weeks now...and I am still having problems with the symptoms...does this mean that it's not working for me...or have I given it enough time? Like I said..."I'm glad You're back!" Love you, Marianne --- Jean Long <> wrote: > Marianne,
