Human Gremlins?

So, I don't know if it's possible for people to get gremlins or not. My bike seems to be sorted out, but the gremlins aren't gone yet. This time they're after my wife.

Last night right before leaving work, my wife started to feel kind of off. She had a strange upper abdominal pain that was causing her quite a bit of discomfort. After I ate a late supper, I did some laundry since my bike clothes were all nasty. This, unfortunately, got me to bed around 2:00 AM and asleep some 10 minutes later. Not really my ideal bedtime considering the alarm goes off at 5:30.

The problem is that I didn't sleep until 5:30. My wife's pain started to flare up to unbearable levels at about 3:30. Off to the ER we went. I brought the bike, since there's a bus stop about a mile from the ER. I'm on the bus right now.

So far, they still don't know what's wrong. They have a few different diagnostics to run. Keep my wife in your prayers if you're the praying type. As for me, I'm going to be operating on 1 hour and 20 minutes of sleep. In other words, riding all the way to work from home would take longer than the nap I got.

I think I feel a 20 ounce quadruple-shot mocha coming my way.

The doctors will take good care of your wife.

I'm still amazed at how you get by with so little sleep.

Just got back from my trip. Sorry to hear about your wife. Yes, of course, I'll keep you both in my prayers.

Hope it's something simple and easy to take care of.
