Mike is doing better now.  His fever has been under 100 for a couple of days, which means that the antibiotics are working.  Apparently, Mike had a rather severe throat infection which eventually caused him to go into toxic shock. He is still sedated and on a ventilator, though he may be relieved of vent support sometime mid-week.  It is expected that Mike will remain in the hospital through this coming week.  A spinal tap (rather than a shunt tap) was performed yesterday.  Test results to determine the presence of an infection in the cerebrospinal fluid are not back yet, but, having discovered a serious infection in Mike’s throat, it may be unlikely that a further problem exists.

On another positive note, when Mike returns to therapy, this event may by then have allowed the botox injections to take effect, and to enable him to make some better progress.
