I got up mid-day from neck discomfort and occasional shooting pains depending on how I oriented my neck. I got Mike to give me a ride into Kaiser at 3 PM, where I saw my main doctor Dr. K. He worked me over a bit and eliminated a few possibilities, coming to a decision that I am having muscle spasms. He prescribed me Tylenol 3 and a lanacaine creme to topically apply to the affected area. So far some relief but the shooting pains have not stopped completely. Time will tell. I had a late bunch of cereal just before leaving for the doctor, but had no time for coffee today. I checked my email when I returned from the Doctor around 4 PM, and talked with Tracy before she started work at 5 PM, and then later on with Marty and Ray about weather, health issues and other matters. I then had a small dinner of a bowl of butternut squash soup and a seafood salad sandwich on rye. I had a few triscuits and cashews well after dinner. I continued to work a bit more on the newly “hatched” Weatherquack weather website which should be fun in the coming months. I hope some of you out there will join in the fun soon on Weatherquack http://www.weatherquack.com – it is completely free and easy to use once you complete your registration and a short ramping up period. I also drank a good part of my ginormous water bottle throughout the evening and early morning hours.
