Today has been one week since Michaels accident. His fever FINALLY broke through the night for the first time. (Another crumb.)
So far blood cultures have come back negative for infections. (Crumb)

Michael still has fever. Dr has ordered more blood tests.
Michael sustained serious injuries. Severe brain injury, multiple broken ribs, lacerated colon and spleen that were repaired in surgery, L4 compression fracture, right ankle broken, multiple lacerations and bruises.
Main concern at the moment is the brain injury. Dr says it will take time. We are grateful for any crumb of hope we can hold on to.
Michael is a great, polite young man that we all love!!
