Today was relatively quiet. All 3 are still in the same crib together and are doing well with it. Niklas had his first brain scan since his surgery and his ventricles are doing remarkably well. They will continue to tap the reservoir on a daily basis until further notice. The doctors did notice that Niklas's white blood cell count had gone up in his spinal fluid, which can be a sign of infection, so they started him on antibiotics. The good news is that he is showing no symptoms of infection and the cultures done on Saturday were all negative, but he will continue to be closely watched. Thanks again to everyone who is reading and following this blog. Greta and I look forward to reading all of the comments every day and checking the hit counter to see how many people have visited. It's a great feeling to know that there are so many people pulling for us and sending their prayers and positive thoughts to our babies.
