I woke up this morning at 5:00 a.m. with a strange pain around my groin… around my groin, not on it. I started to feel cold and was unable to fall back to sleep. By the time Kay woke up I was pretty concerned — this is a pain I’m not used to. I asked Kay to do some searching, and she came up with an Internet diagnosis: Swollen lymph nodes. Apparently my body is working overtime to fight something, and it should just clear up in a couple days.
Phew! I was afraid it was my ovaries. In the meantime I am weak and have a slight fever — just in time for our home group’s last “serious” meeting, great.
I told my lovely wife that the treatment was more sex, but this did not seem to convince her.
“I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell.”
