Update - 2/10

Campbell continues to be treated for meningitis. She is feeling really good and was actually able to start school last week. She also continues to go to dance class with "Miss Linda" and LOVES it!!

After a brief scare last week that when she started showing symptoms of the meningitis again, and a quick trip to the ER, Robin and I were actually able to get away for a few days to TN for a friends wedding - the first time we really have been alone since August. It was very difficult for Robin to be away from Cam as she has been with her every day since everything started.

She had a spinal tap last Tuesday which we hoped would show that the number of white cells in her CSF had dropped to zero. Unfortunately, it was actually only down to 18 (from 30 in the hospital in Boston). So, her antibiotics have been extended to Feb 24th and she will have yet another spinal tap next week to make sure that the infection is gone.

We continue to be amazed by the support of our friends, family and the entire community. Yet another fundraiser was held for Cam and we are inspired by tje way that people have come out to support her. We have always thought that she was a wonderful little girl - we just didn't know how many other people think so too!!! Thank you all so much for your continued prayers. She is still fighting this off and we have no doubt that she has come this far because of them!

With Love,

Greg, Robin, Caitlin, Caroline & Cam
