My Mom Has a Hiatal Hernia – Please Pray

The picture above is of my mom and Riley last week while we were visiting.  Well, the past 2 months or so my mom has been having issues with acid reflux and heartburn.  She hasn't been able to keep any of her food down.  She's lost over 50 pounds because of it - she weighs less than me!  She went to the doctor last month and she put her on some medicine for acid reflux and wanted her to get a colonoscopy done, along with having a scope put down her esophagus to check it out.  Well, she isn't … [Read more...]
