I'm laying on my back after having had the spinal tap (having dental work was MUCH worse!) and have to lay on my back for the next 4 hours to avoid the horrible headache that can occur.
The good news is that I'm going home tonight! The case worker organized for us to have home care medication for the next five days, so tomorrow we'll have the equipment delivered and have a nurse come by to show us how it all works.
While we were dealt a pretty hefty blow today with the diagnosis, knowing I can go home in 5 hours makes even this uncomfy bed bearable!
