**Also, the family has set up a blog to keep friends and family abreast of what's going on and also to help reduce the feeling of obligation to update everyone individually. Most of the posts will be duplicates of my posts on this blog, since the family has asked me to update the blog for them.
Things have been a little slow the past two days. The doctors have had her on a Level 2 of the medication that keeps her under, down from a Level 4 on Sunday afternoon. Today, they decreased it even more and she began having seizures. Back up again, to protect her brain and let it rest. They'll try again another day.
She is still running a fever of about 101. They have given her medication to bring down the fever, along with icing her. She also has a fan up in her room pointed at her. They are successful in cooling her down for a little while, but then the fever spikes again and the process starts over.
A fever is your body's defense mechanism and is typically indicative of an infection. The doctors will be running more tests to try to figure out where the infection is that they haven't been able to reach yet. It seemed that the antibiotics were improving the infection (the abscesses) in her abdomen, but clearly there is something else going on as well.
From Sheri: "Sorry there isn't great news, but the doctors are still very positive. When we find the infection, we have every hope she will come out of it 110 percent again."
