Overnight Dan had some severe head pain and nausea which prompted us to make an ER visit around    5am this morning. The doctors here at UCSD La Jolla ordered a CT scan and a spinal tap (eek!) Brave guy, this one is!

Initial results of the CT scan don't show a huge amount of abnormal pressure inside the head but there is a high level of white blood cells present in his spinal fluid. This is consistent with some kind of infection, they just have to figure out what kind and how it got there.

Nurses are controlling his pain and administering some general antibiotics. But it looks like we are getting admitted for at least an overnight stay. We will keep you updated as the day progresses.
