Hubby received this from Dr. Gray this morning:

From: Nancy Andrews, M.D., Ph.D.
Sent: Thursday, March 13, 2014 2:26 PM
To: Linda Leithe, M.D.
Subject: Mr. Paddock


Mr. Paddock came to see me today, before he visited you. He asked me to make sure that our medical students learn about CSF fluid leak as a cause of positional headache.

I followed up on his request. Len White [Head of medical curriculum Neurobiology] told me that he would develop a case for the medical students during their Neurobiology course and have them read Mrs. Paddock's online blog, and Vern Juel [manages the medical student neurology rotation and he will include a case of intracranial hypotension for the medical students to learn from] told me that he would add a case on CSF leak to the Neurology rotation.

If you happen to speak to Mr. Paddock could you please tell him that I followed through?



Then a few weeks later he received the letter below. Fell free to print this PDF version and take it to a doctor with you to convince them CSF Leaks are real if you must.
