Pain Down the Right Side

I watched TV and a tape of a show that had been at the same time and read the paper. My right hip started hurting, but there's not a lot to do about that. I figured it's because my right knee has started hurting again (it was the rheumatologist who told me to stop taking the glucosamine and maybe even if it's just a placebo I should start again) and I'm sparing it. I went to bed at 2:30am and finished the book at 4am. I can't post about it until Friday because I've been working with the computer today and will have doctor appointments tomorrow and Thursday. I had the hot/cold and got up at noon with my whole right side hurting straight down. I've taken some narcotics so I can take more when I go to bed.

Remember when I posted about the CPSC's recall database? Well, a freshman member of the House has put in an amendment to take the funds away. The manufacturers are backing him, of course.

The EPA is working with six states around the Chesapeake Bay to keep toxins from getting in. The Farm Bureau just heard about that and have put in a suit. The president of the Farm Bureau said: "This new EPA approach will not end with the Chesapeake Bay. EPA has already revealed its plan to follow suit in other watersheds across the nation, including the Mississippi watershed". And that's a problem, why?
