Here's a blog entry I never expected to be posting -- I'm writing from a hospital bed at the moment. I got very sick on Wednesday, went home in the afternoon, felt increasingly worse, got an appointment to see my doctor with only 15 minutes notice (handy when your doctor is also your next door neighbor), and she sent me straight to the hospital.
Jaime saved the day big time by pestering me to go to the doctor, and extending her stay in South Bend while I've been poked and prodded for two days. Still clueless as to what's wrong, but from all descriptions of the pain, it's a lot like a kidney stone.
So who knew hospitals had wireless internet BTW? Jaime, Leslie and Shannon came over to hang out, I chatted on the phone, and am now playing on the computer -- were it not for the IV in my arm, and the good pain drugs they're giving me (always a silver lining), it would seem like any other day this summer.
