This is the only piece in the collection that is an interpretation of a story I was told by my parents. Between the ages of 2 months and 4 years old, I would get very high fevers. My parents would put me in ice baths to lower my temperature. A couple of times, the fever got so high, that I had seizures, and on one occasion almost swallowed my tongue and was rushed to the emergency room. This was a very traumatic time for my parents and this is my vision. (spinal tap)
