I've got this rather sharp right-sided pelvic pain, and I'm trying to figure out if it's an ovarian cyst or my appendix.

Since I have a year-long-plus track record of having non-essential organs give up the ghost, it wouldn't surprise me if it's my appendix.

OTOH, I also have a long history of ovarian cysts. This sucker is killing me, though. The timing is right for a cyst. Of course I'd rather it be a cyst, but I'm thinking it's a little too high... what the heck do I know?

Well: no fever, and no rebound tenderness, which would seem to contra-indicate appendicitis. So that's good.

Oh, and my lower back is killing me to the point where I saw my rheumatologist about it yesterday, and she sent me for x-rays, always useless but always the first step. It will be interesting to see what comes of that.

In other news, my hands are not bothering me today, and I made it up to 65 shots on the kids' ESPN game station, tying DS1's record. (DH's personal best is more than double that!) At one point I sunk 5 in a row. "Wow, Mom, you're in the zone!" DD exclaimed. Hee! Of course she herself gets in the zone from time to time, too. The game station is totally cool. It's nice to feel well enough to want to play with it, too.
