Time for the afternoon update.
Talked to Rie...she's still in a lot of pain and they pretty much think her headache is in fact a spinal headache. It is possible that a little nick was made in the spinal column and some spinal fluid leaked - hence the headache. The fix? She has to lay flat for 6 hours and a caffeine drip. Then they'll have her sit up and dangle her legs over the bed. If the headache is gone...then it's done. If not? She's back to laying flat again. Hopefully, the first 6 will do the trick. We'll know this evening..I'll write more when I find out.
Thanks for all of the prayers and well wishes for Rie. I know they mean the world to her, as they do to all of her family.
