Medication and Heartburn

Bottle of Antacid tablets

I love Robin Williams

So am watching Hook

It is much better

Than reading a book.

Today I was blessed

With what some would say

Some of my voice is back

I am definitely on my way.

I have never been so sick

And for this long

The house has been quiet

But today I sang a song.

I have taken so many meds

My ability to fight is now down

Now my stomach is irritated

And my smile is now a frown.

I am over half way done

Taking this last set of meds

I can not afford to stop

So now taking antacids.

Just let me make it

A few more days

I promise I will be good

And I will mend my ways.

Let Spring come to visit

Let the sun shine on me

Let the warmth finish healing

Let’s go run you and me.

Terry Shepherd

    • today has been the best day so far. I actually was able to move around without as much coughing. I actually have part of my voice back!!!!! Thanks Deana for being here for me through this


      • thank you Deana. It feels good to be back. It makes me so aware of people who are suffering from terminal illness as I battled through this for over two weeks. I m not completely well yet but there is hope. how the terminally ill must feel inside. faith is definitely a thing we need to cling to for tomorrowos


    • thank you my dear friend. I am hoping if the weather is not rainy and I am improving yet tomorrow that maybe I can see my brother on Sunday? or at least Monday. I have really missed him


    • I didn’t think I would get stomach heart burn from the medication but I did. As long as I can take tums I can hopefully take the rest. I am just over half way through this bottle. thanks for caring my friend!!


  1. I’ve been away for a while now. I remember your saying you were coming down with something bad, but I had no idea you were so sick! So glad you are on the mend!


    • thank you Lynda. I am sorry you have been a way. I guess we did it together right? I will be so glad when my medication is all gone. half way through it!!!!! getting a bit better each day!


  2. Antibiotic upset stomach.. it will come down so soon you have taken them all.
    So the heartburn can come from them – you should give your doctor a ring – normally there is some instruction packed with all medicine and there you can read about side effects. Take care of yourself.


    • I am surprised that is all I have as it is one of the side effects of this med. considering i have been on two different types of medications i am surprised i am not down sized to a bowl of jello. hehe
