I think I may have an ulcer.  Off and on now for the last two weeks I’ve been experiencing an excruciating pain in one place between my sternum and my belly button.  The second time it happened while we were in Nashville, I almost hitched a ride to the hospital – the pain woke me out of sleep and persisted for another hour.  Today it lasted three hours and keeps threatening to return.  I’m hoping it can wait the three weeks until we head back up to Michigan.

Oh, did I mention we’re moving back to Michigan in three weeks?
