The DramatistEli 6.9 has been having intermittent stomach pain for over a month now. It's one of those things that's very difficult to figure out, and his "less than accurate" reporting makes it much more difficult. The doctor has him on Prevacid now, but that only seems to help sporadically.
In an attempt to gather some data, we're asking him his pain level on a 1-10 scale. He will say "10" most of the time, even though he's still able to run around the house at a hundred miles an hour and hasn't slowed down one bit in general.
Last night, after he got out of his bath, Gloria asked him how his stomach felt, and he said "Oh, it's a ten."
"It is?" she asked.
"Oh, yeah," he said. "It feels like Cupid shot a fiery arrow into my heart."
