...Well not exactly.

So, the LP getting pulled off flat out was a miracle. They didn't know that they couldn't just use versed on me. Yes, my pressure was up.

They wound up using Propofol, Ketamine, and Versed in a mix together. This is the only time Versed has not turned me into a raging loon that tons of people had to hold down.

The reason they gave it to me was it was supposed to stop the 'crazy thoughts' that Ketamine causes.

It didn't quite work. Well, it did I guess but...okay.

Mom and Papa kissed me, wished me luck, and somehow, in my mind, this turned into them wishing me luck on my test to become an anesthesiologist. The male anesthesiologist was my teacher, the 2 females were my classmates, and I had been going there for YEARS.

While all of this was going on, of course, I was laying on a table, on my side. I couldn't exactly feel my body that well...

So I'm laying there, and I'm thinking that this is a really bizarre test to become an anesthesiologist... And I notice they are scrubbing my back...

....then I remember, I'M HAVING AN LP. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!! I'm not becoming a doctor, I'm being WORKED ON BY THEM. XD

So yeah, took them at least 4 tries, Mom counted 7 holes along my spine. I remember telling them that my leg and back hurt when they hit a nerve root.

Then they asked me how I was and my response was....

"I LOVE MY NANIEL AND I WANNA TALK TO HIM. IMMA MARRY HIM ONE DAY!"

I kinda went back into the haze, then they asked me how I was once the LP was over and I was trying to tell them I felt great....and that I didn't feel like vomiting anymore.

Somehow I didn't get it out right, and they wound up giving me more zofran.

Now for the weirdness.

So, I'm laying there in recovery and the radiologist is asking EVERYONE who walks by "Who was the guy who came from neurology and got the spinal fluid sample?"

"I don't know, I thought YOU knew who he was?!" Was the answer he got...from everyone. So now I'm wondering if there's some crazy who just walked in off of the streets and was like OM NOM SPINAL FLUID PLZ.

Having to look into getting a shunt again. Not too happy about that. But okay otherwise.
