Don't EVER get a spinal tap!!!! This is a warning. Just don't do it. There's a 20 % chance of something going wrong--the hole not closing and spinal fluid leaking... and OF COURSE that's what had to happen to me. For the past 5 days I have been in COMPLETE agony. If my parents didn't drive down from RI I would have probably had to be admitted to a hospital. Every time I lifted my head I got severe head pain and nausea. If I tried to get up I'd start vomiting. This went on for 5 days!!! The issue was finally resolved by something called a blood patch--the anesthesiologist takes blood from your arm and injects it into the spine to seal the hole. The doctor said there's a chance the problem can come back in a few days so I'm crossing my fingers! So scary!
HOPEFULLY I will be able to get back to work and get going on some new project ideas soon. I also need to update my website!
On the topic of books--I'm trying to brain storm for some craft ideas for my book The Astronaut Handbook. If any of you have any good ideas for projects please let me know! Also let me know about promo ideas... anything that has to do with space and/or astronauts. The book is coming out in 3 months I believe.
