Jumbalaya and Skiing…

April 15, 2006

One of the first times I noticed anything — anything — wrong was skiing. I didn’t know from heartburn, and had a bowl of jumbalaya for lunch one ski day. In the afternoon I didn’t know what was up… chest pain, right in mid section. Not to be too gross, but a big belch later reminded me of “mmmm…. jumbalAYA”, and friends laughed and said “oh, sounds like heartburn”.

That night I learned of a hialtal hernia that some other friends had, and how getting old (and gaining some weight) might cause extra heartburn. I dismissed it and went back to the usually schceduled programming.

But three months later this would resurface as something more serious.
