I just got back in from Colorado!!  We had to come home early, but we had a pretty
good time.  I did get sick, in ER 2 times and they told me it was more altitude sickness
that irritated my stomach.  So the second time, they found out about Rick's heart attack
last year and told us to desend immediately.  So we did.  I phoned my doc today to get
results on my CAT scan and they told me it was all normal.  They said they would be able
 to see adhesions if they were there.  So, I dont know where to go from here.  I just sat
down and had a good cry.  I am to the point of exhaustion and tired if this.
Just thought I would fill you in.   Robin
