Pre-surgery Update

The nurse just let me know that Charlie's CSF sample from the 23rd has grown another gram postitive cocci. It is the same situation as a week ago. The organism only grew in the broth after 48 hours. The nurse has contacted neurosurgery so we are waiting to see what they decide.

Hey Charlie, stop growing stuff in your broth.

I wanted to say that, prior to last night's list of improvements, I had noticed that overall his heartrate list looks much better as well!

Good luck today little buddy. We are all praying for you!

Good luck little Charlie and Christensen family. We will be checking for updates frequently. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers today. Is Brockmeyer doing the surgery today if it indeed happens today?

Keep us posted on what neurosurgery syas...that stinks his CSF grew another bacteria. These things happen for a reason...don't know why, but they do. So there must be some good reason this happened today, right (;

We're thinking of you guys and praying for Charlie.
