We saw an octopus and a sunken sailboat. We saw about a half dozen grouper, but didn’t get any good shots. Dave did find one lobster shortly before we quit for the day. We usually had a large barracuda patrolling the waters near us. That made us change locations often.
So between the gear, currents and barracudas, I was in and out of the dinghy all day long. By the end of the day, I had an aching left shoulder. I had noticed it a little on Sunday, but I was really hurting today. It wasn’t like a stiff neck, more like a damaged muscle.
I took some Aleve and found a heat pack to put on my shoulder. Dave made dinner while I did nothing. After dinner, I decided to take a pain med and go to bed. We have Rx drugs on board just for things like this. I took one pill with hydrocodone and after about 30 minutes with no relieve, took a second one and went to bed.
I woke up about 3:00am and decided to take more pain med, just so I could sleep through the night. Since I had taken 2 the night before, I decided in my half awake mind to take 2 more. Boy was that a mistake on an empty stomach! I spent the next 2-3 hours in the bathroom throwing up. I tried to eat crackers or bread, but nothing would stay down. The sun was up by the time I was able to go back to bed.
