Blood patch failed
by heather

When the doctors did the blood patch they told me there was a 10% chance that it would fail. It turns out I'm in that 10%. I was only up for about two hours today before the low pressure headache started again. So now we're spending another day in the hospital, but in Saratoga this time. (We drove through the fresh snow last night.) They're trying to get rid of the headache with some IV meds. If that doesn't work, I'll need another blood patch. Let's hope I don't need another one because if see another needle I'm gonna go crazy. I don't have any veins left that aren't all bruised.
