This is Spinal Tap

If you look it up, here's what you'll learn about the risks of a spinal tap:
When spinal fluid is removed during a lumbar puncture the risks include headache from a persistent spinal fluid leak, brain herniation, bleeding, and infection. Each of these complications are uncommon with the exception of headache, which can appear from hours to up to a day after a lumbar puncture.

Hooray, sound like fun! Let's do this!

My memory is blissfully spotty on this, I don't know if they gave me something to make me loopy or if it's just the brain's way of protecting the psyche but whatever, I'm grateful. I remember lying down on my stomach on the hardest surface ever known to man. Then, suddenly, I was in recovery and could hear the girl next to me crying through the curtain. I could tell she was in a great deal of pain so I asked if she was okay. She had just had her own lumber puncture and overheard her tell the nurse she was there alone. She was so sad,I tried to distract her until the nurse brought Craig in to get me.

He got me home and into bed where I had to lay flat for the next 24 hours. Next thing I knew my sister came in and deposited the tiny, warm bundle that was newborn Abbie next to me and suddenly, all was right with the world again. Napping with her for the next couple of hours was the magical healing potion I needed. It reminded me that whatever the results, I would be okay because I wasn't alone like that poor girl at the  hospital. I had a large network of support and so, so, so much love.

Screw. You. Spinal. Tap.
