An hour and a half of pain

So it's surprising (to me especially) that I feel as good* as I do this morning. Between half one and three this morning I had the worst stomach cramps I've had for a long time. I wanted to cry, but that hurt more. The heat pad helped, but didn't cure it entirely (whatever it was) and eventually I crawled back into bed and some kind of sleep until 7am (an hour after the alarm went off).

I've a 9:30 meeting this morning, and a full calendar for the rest if the day. MOH said why go in, but considering how I felt in the night at 8am I was so much better it didn't seem like anything not to go in for!

* good as in not terribly bad, but not zippedy doodah either.
