Tuvia’s in Charge


A sign!  Tuvia has come back into his own after a horrible month of August, in and out of the hospital:tests, an operation, hopelessness.

I don’t know about you, but I always believed that you if have a medical problem it can be solved. I know, romantic.  Even though Tuvia is a doctor and very realistic,  I believed in the myth of the white coat.

After a month of tests, more tests, an operation and more tests Tuvia’s lost 20 pounds in the cycle of prepping for a test and then adjusting to normal again.  Sadly, so far they have not found the source of his bleeding problem.

He is now a patient with a superstar gastroenterologist who has new data to read from Tuvia’s last capsule test taken last Tuesday. Now that’s a very cool test.  He swallows a small capsule, puts on a belt with technology able to read the data from the camera in that capsule circling through his intestines. Sounds like a movie I saw in my childhood. But the camera can only shoot what’s in front, so it misses a lot.  He’s taken this test twice before with no clear results, but maybe this time it will work and maybe this time his new doctor will see something with sharper eyes.  Maybe I can believe again.

But what’s more important is the reality above.  Tuvia is back.  He’s not bleeding now, but if and when he starts again he has a plan.  He is back in charge, back in his life, filling up our calendar with events.

I’m feeling very good about that.  I believe in Tuvia 🙂
