Unlike every other attempt at a lumbar puncture (LP) for my Spinraza treatment last Friday was about as easy and quick as ever. Arrived at Stanford way early because we didn't get any traffic. Checked in, got called almost immediately. The staff at Stanford has been just great to me. Even during the roughest and longest attempts at a LP, they have always been supportive, kind, and very capable. Got on the table for the florescope and about a half-hour later they were in and taking spinal fluid to give space for the Spinraza. Bingo! That was it.

Went to Max's and had macaroni and cheese with bacon for my reward. We shared some potato soup and latkes. My morning worker tried their chili and seemed to enjoy it. [personal profile] loracs got a corned beef Ruben on rye. Everyone was happy.

Usually the day after an LP I'd be in pain and exhausted. I won't say I wasn't a little tired but it was nothing like it has been recently. Now I wait four months, for the next one. *bouncybouncy*
