Nighttime village


Here’s the apartment across the way from us, as photographed last night. Slightly fuzzy Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone cam, taken from our porch during an evening phone conversation with my mother, and part of my famous Architecture and Garden series.

Wonders of WordPress today.  No post on Monday either.  I have excuses, though.  Someday I’ll tell you about them.

Kind of a tough weekend for LRN4.  She got her lumbar puncture, as previously discussed, and immediately started feeling quite sick, with a massive headache, dizziness, weakness, exhaustion, and general malaise.  Spent the entire weekend that way.  At our regular Monday appointment with our doctor, she told him what was going on.  He poked and prodded a little bit, made some phone calls to the Radiology department, and got us an appointment immediately for a procedure they call a blood patch.  That’s where they take a little bit of blood and poke it into your back so it heals up the puncture in the spinal membrane.  It worked essentially immediately and she’s feeling very good again.

Unfortunately, my takeaway from the weekend’s events is that I’m probably going to be nervous about relapses for LRN4 for a good long time.  As she felt worse and worse and her symptoms were similar to what was going on when this mess long, strange trip started, I found myself being very worried about whether LRN4 was having a relapse.  Subsequent discussion has revealed that she was feeling pretty much the same way.  Sigh.  I guess a lot of water needs to pass under that bridge before we feel really comfortable again.

And that’s about it for today.  More on Wednesday evening.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: hamburger heist!

See you tomorrow.

    I’m so sorry to hear how rough the weekend was for Mom. Even though the treatments are not as bad as having cancer, they are still pretty invasive and serious. Thank goodness the patch worked so quickly. I love you guys!
