You will have significant experiences.
I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of
them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh
your memory of these meaningful and significant things.
Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you.
Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some
may build upon another until they represent a lifetime of
special experiences.

Dear Family and Friends,

Zac’s MRI from yesterday showed a small CSF leak.  That leak is responsible for his headache.  The prescribed treatment is another 48 hours of bedrest, lying as flat as possible.  Doing this will hopefully allow the leak to seal on its own, thus avoiding a second surgery to close it.  We are hopeful the leak has already started to resolve as Zac is feeling much better today.  He was able to shower and be vertical for about 10 minutes before his head started to hurt, which is a huge improvement over the 1 minute of tolerance he had yesterday.  His physical therapy orders have been converted to bed exercises only while he’s on bedrest.  So he’s here until at least Monday.  His back pain continues to improve.  Today his dressing was removed and he was able to shower over his incision.  It looks good and is closed with no fewer than 45 staples!  

While we are disappointed to be spending Easter apart from our family, we are so thankful for Zac’s improvement.  We pray it continues in the days to come.  We are so thankful for all of your love, prayers and support and hope you all have a wonderful Easter.  We are thankful for all of you and also for my mom who remembered to make Easter baskets for the kids :-)

Believe in Miracles,

The Bollinger Family
