File this under too much information, but what the heck...

I went to the emergency room last night with some abdominal cramps and bleeding (never have had symptoms like that before). Needless to say I was a bit freaked out.

Long story short, I have bacterial colitis, most likely from some tainted food. I've started antibiotics and am on a liquid diet for a couple of days, but should be completely better by Friday. This is, frankly, the ideal outcome, as it was easily spotted with early labwork and I did not need to undergo any more -- ahem -- invasive tests than necessary. Light blogging in the forecast for the next day or two.

Hope you feel better soon. Glad you didn't have to have more tests [including upening up your abdominal cavity, to make sure you didn't have appendicitis].

Whoah, just saw this. Hope you're feeling better.

Dang. Opening, not upening. Interesting neologism, though.

Yikes! Get well soon. We'll wait for your full recovery.

I know I'm checking in late on this but I hope my comment finds you totally recovered and happy!
