Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and comments!

Now let me say... whenever you take over the counter medication be sure to read the label, the directions, the total count of how many is in the box. So I bought (I can't believe I'm going to share this most embarrasing story with you all - however you all could use a good laugh might as well be at my expense!) - an off brand laxative. Never used one before. But I've been in pain for a week and nothing natural was working. So I bought a box of the chocolate stuff. I thought oh how yummy and a great excuse to eat chocolate! So, I get home and read it should take 6-12 hrs to kick in so I figure out the timing and think oh cool, I can take it now. So, it says to take 1-2 squares. So I open the box and tilt it foward into my hand and one foil pack falls into my palm. I open and the back side is facing me so I pop that square into my mouth. Well! Three hours later it's working already - I have stomach cramps and I'm thinking how do anorexics stand this stuff! So, while sitting there bored I read the package... it says there is 18 in there. I think to myself wow, how do they get 18 of those foil packs into that little... Oh my God, please tell me I didn't! I open it up and there is only 1 foil pack in the box! I open it up turn it over and there it is... 9 little tiny pill size pieces that you are supposed to break off of the SQUARE I ate! So yep, I did, I took 9 count 'em 9 ladies... 9 little pill sized pieces equal in my eyes 1 square. So needless to say... I'm a little crampy today and won't be at my desk much!
I was home yesterday as little man has strep throat and I believe I might also so I will be taking a trip to the dr today to have that checked out.
Really, is 2007 over yet?
