Quiet Day :)

Today has been pretty uneventful. Charlie has had a few storms but I think they are getting better. A surprise today was that he had a fever today of 100.4 and he hasn’t had a fever for quite a while. It came down shortly afterwards but I’m hoping this isn’t indication of infection. He has restarted Vancomyacin as a precaution due to the CSF culture. Dr. Osguthorpe is going to complete the immune system work up to make sure there isn’t an underlying condition that prevented Charlie from fighting the original bacteria. This information should be back around the end of the week. They are also analyzing his bacteria to see the exact serotype (strain).

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain."
I just read that quote in an email and thought it might apply to Angel, Rob and all your family. I think you are dancing in the rain quite well. Seems you don't even mind getting wet.
BTW The last pic of Charlie is surly a reflectionh of just how her feels about the whole mess.

I am so glad for CC that Dr. Osguthorpe is back. I think that he saved Charlie's life. Keep up the good work Charlie!

It has been a few days since I last checked the blog and I am pleased to see that Charlie is making some progress. I saw Charlie sleeping on that red ball and reminded me of the one my fiance bought me. However, she told me that I am supposed to use it to work out or something??? Maybe she thinks I am getting pudgie...I think Charlie has the right idea.
Happy to see you are all still hanging in there...keep up the good work Charlie!
