     We have had days of waiting without much change.  Mike's fevers have not returned and he has been usually alert and sometimes communicative nodding and mouthing words.  He has also been getting physical, occupational, and speech therapy in the hospital.  Today they told us that they checked again for infection.  Mike has a bacteria called C. diff which is extremely common for those in hospitals on antibiotics which kill good bacteria and allow C. diff an opportunity to thrive.  The original tests for this had been inconclusive and they cannot be sure whether it is what he had all along but that is an option.  They are now treating it.  Mike is also scheduled for his shunt surgery tomorrow morning at 8:30.  As of this moment they are going ahead with surgery despite the infection but will have to reassess in the morning to be sure.

     Please thank God for the diagnosis and pray that the infection clears up quickly.  Also, pray that surgery is able to go smoothly and takes care of the fluid buildup for good.  Pray for our patience as we readjust our schedules to God's good timing.  Thanks again for all the encouragement and Scripture.         –michelle
