Good Morning! Amy had an EEG (brain activity test) done last night ...results today. She has had a few negative spinal fluid tests :) so the infection appears to be clearing! She is also starting to breath some on her own with just the trach collar (CPAP) at night time but it is definitely an improvement. They are starting to wean her off her pain medication very slowly over next month.
At this time we are planning on being in Orlando for approximately one month (could vary) we are staying at the Ronald McDonald House which is fantastic!
