Operation 11

Operation 11 happened on Friday.  We tried giving Ezekiel a pre-med this time which helped quite a bit.  He was still upset but not as bad as he normally is.  He slept for a long time afterwards though so I need to remember that for next time and be prepared to come home very late.  They took off 25mls of CSF which is about average for him.

There has been a big difference in Ezekiel's headaches since his latest lumbar puncture.  He is quite traumatized though, I think a few chilled out days at home are needed.
