Thank you Brian!

I love this forum it’s been a lifeline for me. I have learned so much about my condition hydrocephalus and my ongoing csf leak. I’ve has two brain surgeries and 7 epidural patches at Stanford.

When I see Dr Carroll I always tell him about inspire and how I’ve even met some of his other patients through this forum.

We decided to postpone my next patch which is where they final located the leak. I prayed about it and expressed my concerns dr c was great.

The next day they shut down San Francisco, I am so glad I decided to wait. I think I posted with you back when I was trying to decide.

Anyways it’s headache time…hard to articulate how much this forum means to me.

Virtual hugs,
