Boo! Boo! Boo!

Monday, April 21, 2014

Last night, I started feeling a bit of twinge in my upper abdomen, just to the right of center. It feels like a muscle ache, but I haven't done anything that would have stressed my upper abs.

I'm skipping a run at lunch because I have an Incredibly Important hearing tomorrow and I'm finishing up all my brilliant legal arguments. In reality, I'm skipping my run because of this achy thing. It hurts to bend forward, but not backwards. If it was pulled/strained muscle, I would think it'd hurt more when I bend backwards.

My legal assistant has chronic pancreatitis. Her eyes got really big when I told her about this pain. I haven't eaten anything out of the ordinary or anything to excess. I have one beer 2-3 times a week, and occasionally I have two. I don't drink cow's milk. I had a weird, sudden dizzy spell Saturday afternoon, but it passed.

I promised I'd monitor the pain. If it moves to my back, I will call the urgent care nurse. But now, I'm just going to make funny faces and feel sorry for myself. I still plan to ride my bike home, but I'll make sure I can throw my leg over the top tube before I change into my kit.

This Incredibly Important hearing really has to happen tomorrow. This guy's been in detention for almost six months awaiting a decision on one issue. The court has to decide this issue before we can try him. Absent me being in the emergency room, the court isn't likely to continue the hearing. (This isn't the type of thing I can hand off to another attorney the morning of the hearing.)

I'm hopeful it's nothing. I'm sure it's nothing. I'm still going to make funny faces and feel sorry for myself, though.

    I really want that t-shirt. I love sandwiches.

But I also really hope the mysterious twinge goes away!

    Gut it out? Was that sly pun intentional?

And yes, I should hiss. But not around our cats - it confuses them.

And I skipped the ride home. It seemed the most prudent step.

    It's nothing. Really, it's nothing. Just a twinge. NOTHING.

See? I'm helping. If we say it with enough confidence, it's true.

(Seriously, Slug, you'll gut it out until you get the work done that you need to do, and then you'll get it checked out. Gotta take care of yourself.)

Hang in there!

Hope you feel better soon!

  I hope you feel better. It could be a muscle cramp instead of a pulled muscle. Perhaps a soak in an epsom salt bath might help (if it isn't pancreatitis).

    I'm the one who's trying to send this guy to prison. My client is the State of Washington. On the plus side, my client never fails to appear for court, never says anything stupid to the judge, and doesn't show up for court wearing a t-shirt that reads "Cute story, babe. Now make me a sandwich." (No lie. Female defense attorney, female prosecutor, female judge. Went over like the proverbial fart during a funeral mass.)

But I do have a strong sense of fairness. We're not doing anything for anybody by keeping this person locked up in a detention facility, which it supposed to be temporary.

    I can see you are really committed to your client. Fingers crossed for your health and your hearing!!

    Take care of yourself. This doesn't sound good. It certainly doesn't sound like a pulled muscle.. Hmmm..
