Late last night, not long before bedtime, I started getting pain in my lower right side. Â Now, I am not overly worried that it be eppendicitis. First, it started right there in my right side, not migrating from the middle or front or spread around the lower guts. Â Also the pain was merely distracting, not incapacitating. I had no fever – actually, my temperature was lower than normal, and I had to warm up for 20 minutes before I stopped shivering.Â And I was not vomiting (actually still am not). Still, unlike common gas pains, it did not change or move when I lay down on my side. Â I did get some sleep, but less than I would want and of poor quality; I woke up very tired.
Since then, my guts have been running wild for a while, but the pain is fading. So most likely it was some kind of local irritation. Â By then I had already taken the day off though.
One nifty thing about having a sick day is that I can see what happens around the house when I am supposed to not be here. Â Today, two cars arrived, one with a lot of planks, and a couple people are replacing the old fence between this house and the neighbor. Â (I have only one neighbor within fencing distance, so to speak.) I am not sure if this is an initiative by my landlord or my neighbor.
