Poor Parker :l
Dr. Osguthorpe came in and checked his exam and found increased posturing, and dialated pupils that were not as reactive as before. This seems to be the way he gets when he gets aggitated. When he has time to relax his pupils go to a 2 (left) and a 3 (right). He definately wants to do another MRI but he doesn't know if it will be today, tomorrow or Sunday. His CRP is elevated but his WBC (cells that elevate to fight infection) are finally normal. So once again Charlie is a confusing patient.
After researching the literature of severe menigitis cases he is "not as optomistic as he was a couple days ago that Coop would be the boy he was before he came in." Rob and I expected this after the MRI results but the Dr just reaffirmed it.
They are increasing his feedings today and he just pooped again. Poor Parker that had to clean up. And not two seconds after closing the diaper he started again.
I like to watch him open his eyes anytime someone moves him even though it makes him mad.
