Hi everyone!
As you have read or heard our girl is back in ICU. They warned her that this might happen so she was prepared, not happy of course, but prepared. Her words…”they stuck a very large catheter in her back and not the happy epidural kind you get when you have a baby”. They are draining her CSF (Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), Liquor cerebrospinalis, is a clear bodily fluid that occupies the subarachnoid space and the ventricular system around and inside the brain. Essentially, the brain "floats" in it.) Sounding pretty smart aren't I (thanks to Wikipedia)
A nurse is going in about every three hours and draining 10cc. to help relieve the pressure. Which of course will cause a major headache. Hopefully she will be released at some point tomorrow (Tuesday).

I will update again when I get more info, or Patty will if she gets the chance.
