I hope everyone had a fun a safe Labor Day weekend! Even though I was only able to go mountain biking once over the 3-day weekend (the flank pain I’ve been experiencing got real bad on Saturday night), I still had a lot of fun. Thankfully the pain subsided on Sunday and has remained very tolerable since. I even spent all day yesterday detailing our automobiles and didn’t experience any serious pain. Still, I’m calling my doctor first thing this morning and I’m going to try to get in there today. I really want to get to the bottom of this mystery pain. If he feels it’s possibly a kidney stone (and I suspect he will), based on what I’ve read he’ll take an x-ray and get a urine sample. Hopefully we’ll know something pretty quickly.I’d originally planned to grill some burgers for Labor Day, but after working outside all day long I didn’t feel like cooking. So Lisa and I went out for some barbecue and a couple of beers, which is just about the best thing in the world after working outside under the sun. 🙂
By the way, I did not workout yesterday. I normally lift even if there’s a holiday, but I don’t want to take a chance on aggravating whatever is wrong with me right now. That pain on Saturday night and Sunday morning was really intense, and I’d rather not go through that again if I can help it.
Time to get to work. Have a great day!
