The opposite of "Ow"

Yesterday, I was in terrible pain. My mouth hurt from the gum boil, my leg hurt from the tendonitis, my calf hurt from a bout of overnight cramp and my ankle hurt because it wanted to (it feels like a couple of the bones aren't sitting right), I have no idea why, it just does that occasionally.

Today? Bliss.

My mouth is fine, courtesy of the NHS, my ankle has fixed itself (it always does that, shortly after it starts hurting). But best of all, the tendonitis that has been plaguing me for the last six months, has gone!

Why? I don't really know, but I've had a total absence from caching (meaning, from walking) for the last few weeks (and that hasn't been easy, I'm getting withdrawal symptoms), and maybe the lack of tendon aggravation has just allowed it to heal itself. Maybe going off Warfarin helped? Maybe even the Erythromycin that I'm taking for my gum helped, but I don't see how, it's too soon, surely. But you know what they say about gift horses. I'm not complaining, because my hip isn't.

So, you know how when you stub your toe you say "Ow". Well, I'm saying the opposite of "Ow".
