A small complication

We had to make a trip to the ER last night when my mom noticed a small lump at the top of Corryn's incision. So, instead of Dave spending the evening attending the graduation dinner put on by his residency program (even though he still has 6 weeks of residency left...), we spent it in the ER. She has a small cerebral spinal fluid leak- the most common complication after this surgery. So, it's back to having to be horizontal to let gravity help us in keeping it from leaking further. We're to follow up with the surgeon on Monday. Thankfully she didn't have to be sedated again for another MRI, since all the people we most trusted to do this were at the graduation dinner. But, if it continues to leak, she'll have to go back to surgery to fix the leak.
