Luke is sleeping the day away with the help of pain medication for his headaches. Both "the parentals" have been with him and are providing frequent updates. He has been feeling a bit better when he is up but the lumbar punctures (spinal taps) are doing a number on him and they are essentially causing alot of irritation and inflammation of the lining of his brain and spinal cord which gives him a pretty gnarly spinal headache. He spiked another temperature last night but his blood cultures are still negative at this time.
His morning labs looked a bit better with more white blood cells and greater blood levels in general after getting his blood yesterday. He has to be fever free for 24hours before they will let him come back home...so keep up the prayers FEVER FREE!!
