Millie, they forewarned me about the intestine drying up and drinking lots of water...which I did...probably why it's moving so well (too well), huh? The poor doctor "boy" (27 yrs. old) kept screwing up my x-rays...he kept telling me I needed to drink more barium and he was sorry that he couldn't get it right. Then the doc didn't show up for the live he had to take different tests to compensate...drinking more barium as they did the they could watch it as I swallowed. I ended up with two cups by the time it was done. And since I burped I had to take two of those gas crystal packets. He was so young. On the brite side he smelt good. (cute, too). Thanks for your e-mail. The nausea has, that helps. Love ya, Marianne P.S. My husband tried to make up for yesterday and the dinner he went to get baked chicken...came back with kentucky fried chicken loaded with grease.....and a 2-liter of pepsi. ???????????? I don't think he gets my change of you? LOL I appreciated his effort and wasn't angry...peeled off the skin and crunchy stuff, and wiped the grease off with a paper towel. In this house...if you want something done (and done right) you have to do it yourself. --- Millie <> wrote: > I also had the upper G.I. series with small bowel
