Back From The Troubles On The Surgical Tables

Short & sweet- last Thursday I had an endoscopy to check on how the Dieulafoy's Lesion was doing in my stomach. My INR was inexplicably high )4.1) so she could not biopsy the bit of ulcerated material that was still there. She did find a "seeper" in an another part of my stomach but attributed that to the high INR. She zapped that with an epi, pulled the scope & sent me on my merry way. Mrs. coldH2Owi & I had dinner, did some shopping, & then drove home. My stomach was feeling a bit off, but nothing big. I managed to not sleep at all that night & by the a.m. had full-blown stomach pain. Of course, I assumed that I had bled again in the stomach, like a couple of months ago, but no, it couldn't be that rational. I had to have my appendix removed. Jesus Tits! Talk about a surprise. Or as one friend said, "What are you, 12?"

Back to the post - when corporate America appears to be acting in the public's interest, it will only go so far.
So ConAgra — which sold more than 100 million pot pies last year under its popular Banquet label — decided to make the consumer responsible for the kill step.
Yup, you're right, the old blame the consumer ruse. Consumer responsibility equals consumer fault.It would be nice if someone mentioned to ConAgra that the Democrats won. On second thought, someone probably has done that.

Maybe when she did the endoscopy she knocked some barnacles loose.

Glad to see activity on this site, was beginning to wonder if you sprung another leak. Good luck
