Well, today is almost over, kinda uneventful to say the least. The only test they did today was the Spinal Tap....they took 4 viles worth of fluid so all the tests could be done! The Doc's have bascially narrowed it between a severe viral infection or reoccuring lymphoma. They have also caught another symptom....something has settled in his left lung. We don't know what yet, but they are going to make sure they find out. Unfortunately, we are set back a day because of the busy day the Doc's had, they weren't able to get here until almost 330pm. So now we wait until Wednesday. No one else really said anything else that we haven't heard yet, so again, we wait. Colin was up more today, awake, i mean. So i hope he'll have a good sound sleep tonite, and i hope that his head aches keep getting a little better each day. He is SO weak, though, i'm trying to get him up as much as i can, but he can't handle much more than the bathroom and back.....but tonite i got him a shake and he's managed to get about half of it down. This will help get his strength up and get his body nutrients. Since he hasn't been eating solids since this whole thing has started and he's been basically bed-ridden as well.
We're trying to be patient, and we're running out of ways to help calm each other's nerves!
I don't think either of us will have rest until we get some answers!
i'll tell you what we know tomorrow after the Doc's come around!

Luv, Melissa
