Good news= the spinal tap culture did not grow any organism. No new seizures. His pupils are about the right size for the amount of light in the room and they are closer to being equal than previously.
Bad news=Charlie is posturing more than usual. His respirations are faster than they would like to see and he did a funny breathing thing yesterday that His fever is still fluxuating. Both the Dr. Filloux and Dr. Osguthrope said they would have liked to see more alertness and less posturing by this time but he was a very sick boy. He probably won't be extubated until he has less posturing even though he is triggering most of the breathing. Now we just have to wait for little Coop to tell us when he is ready for the tube to come out. Every day we will readdress this question.
