whine whine snivel snivel

with all of the catastrophic events happening in the world, it's almost unseemly to snivel, but i am going to any way. i did something to my back, don't know, can't remember, but it kicked me square in the midsection yesterday. i missed a great outing with friends on the water to watch a concert given downtown napa, from my buddy KW's boat. instead, i was at the hospital, getting some shot that put me in snooze land for about 4 hours yesterday afternoon. i don't know what the hell it was they gave me, but it didn't seem to have any affect what so ever for about an hour. i took the muscle relaxer they gave me, and i was sitting in the living room, whining about how much it was bothering me. poor wife. she gets to see me at my worst. anyway, i was alert and sniveling one minute, then figured i might lay down for a while to see if that helped. i don't remember anything after walking down the hallway to the bedroom. like i said, i don't remember what it was, but i like it. a lot. best 4 hour nap i've had in forever.
so today i'm walking around with a definite port list, babying the owie. i'll get better. i just wish it was now and not later.

one thing about being married to a nurse. her friends are all nurses. and we were going out with a couple of them last night before i bailed out. between the three of them i was triaged with everything running the gamut from a simple muscle pull, to kidney stones, to some thing much more dire. i love them, but sometimes they can scare the shit out of me. what the hell do i know? i'm just a nuke. they are nurses. sometimes i wish they didn't diagnose me before i get a chance to see the doc. i don't know anything, and they know too much. the bright side is that they care enough to be concerned, and that is one of the definitions of friend.

Get better soon, shipmate ('cause your a load on the watchbill! *wink*).

And I feel your pain--I mean about having nurses in the family who scare the sh*t out of you!

Hope you are on the mend. I know too much for my own good. They are right, could be something simple to something serious. Glad you are getting it checked out.

I feel your pain shipmate.
I screwed up my back a couple of years ago and it took three months before I was right again. The back pain was almost secondary to the sciatica (A torture I would wish on no one). No golf for three months was the icing on the cake. Here's hoping you get well soon.
