its about three thousand bucks for a shot of morphine UPDATE
“Where’s the appendix,” I asked. MrsDoF pointed to the lower right abdomen. It was about 2 in the afternoon w were at the bike shop. The pain was in the lower left.
Well that leaves three things. DEscending colon could be having spasms. Could be a kidney stone. Could be that old twice-re-done hernia operation, with its polyester mesh and titanium staples. Every once in a while that ‘pulls’ and I have a few hours of bad.
I asked the bike shop owner to look after my bike and MrsDoF rode home to get her car. (She has a new helmet! I am very happy about that.)
very, very carefully I climbed into the car, and MrsDoF seemed to find every pothole on the way home. It’s been a bad afternoon and evening. I’ve ruled out kidney stonenl; no blood in urine. (normally it’s the color of cranberry juice when I pass one.
I lay on the bed shivering under a pile fo blankets. My pain circuits are screwed up, they go to 11. B efore long it was like a system-wide nociceptor load test.
OK, when it’s a kidney stone, we go to the ER, they take one look at my urinekl and it’s IV mprphine time oer last time dilaudid. I go in and say; I don’t know what it is but GIVE ME MORPHINE RIGHT NOW GODDAMMIT And I spend the next few ghours in detox for drug seekinge. And still send me bill when they finally figure it out
Not how I wanted to spen dmy birthday.
1:28 am sunday I am loathe to awaken MrsDoF but off to hospital we go. I thought it was getting better but not. Whatever ti is, anin’t pa\ssing.
