From Magnus

After admission, spinal tap was performed and the cerebrospinal fluid was analyzed for amounts of white blood cells.  The white blood cell count showed an infection, indicating meningitis.  The meningitis could be viral or baterial and analysis would be completed within 48 of spinal tap

CT scan was performed and showed some areas of abnormal activity.

Luke was admitted and treated for bacterial meningitis and the herpes virus meningitis, the only viral meningitis that can be treated

Last Update Tonight...

Luke will be here until Monday. He is currently on 3 antibiotics through IV; still having muscle cramps and stomach pains; hasn't talked much yet but that's due to the 30-35 minute seizure, valium, and meds (we hope); we have truly felt all the prayers; thank you!
