What I Do, Fun-wise: The internet is my playground. (Thank you, Al Gore.) I spend a lot of time on it, blogging, reading news/gossip sites, chatting with people, what-have-you. I also make a lot of unnecessary trips to Target. Not sure if that counts as fun, but it seems to take up a lot of my time... And I foster dogs for a rescue organization (RED Collar Rescue).

Aundrea Aragon had a really runny nose for four months, so she finally went to an urgent care facility. (I guess a trip to a regular doctor after a week of non-stop nasal dripping was too much of a hassle? Okay, she did see a regular doctor, who told her that she just had allergies.) Turns out, IT WAS HER BRAIN LEAKING OUT OF HER NOSE.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the ABC article:
"[In the outdated surgery that most hospitals still perform] We retract the brain and pull it backward, taking out the frontal lobes and lift them out of the way and patch up the belly of the brain," he said.
...Aragon will have to be monitored several times a year. "She's not leaking anymore, but we have to make sure she doesn't spring a new leak," said her doctor.
"You are constantly making brain fluid. It can be fatal when there is a connection between the cleanest part of the body, the brain, and the dirtiest part, the nose." <-- I learned something new there!
