A couple of months back a new GI did an upper endoscopy and quickly diagnosed chronic inactive gastritis.

I would think they might want you to stay home and reschedule the test. I know I would if I were working in that office. (oops! I just realized that I am a day late. Did you have the test?)

From what I can find about the test it does not sound too bad. The worst part would be the fasting. I think you only have to drink the sugary stuff once and then they just test your breath every 20 minutes or so for the next 3 hours.

They agreed we should postpone it, they were already short two people out sick, so I'll do it week after next.
