An Exciting Day at Work

May 23, 2011 22:04:51.544

Nothing gets your attention like a midday trip to the emergency room. I've had a slight bit of chest pain (left side) for a few days now, and this morning it started to really hurt - my boss took me down to the nearest emergency room, and then waited the process out with me. They strapped me in, took some blood, ran a few tests - and apparently, I managed (no clue how) to strain a muscle in that spot (exacerbated last night, it looks like, when I helped a woman with a back problem put her bag in the overhead bin).

Alls well that ends well - my ekg, blood pressure, and pulse checked out fine, and the blood work didn't show anything ominous.

There was one upside - I managed to miss a meeting that would almost certainly have been dull :)

Glad to hear it was a false alarm!

Well, that's a relief. Advil + Tylenol will do wonders to dull the pain and take the inflammation down.

Glad you're all right.

Maybe it was the weed pulling?
