Kyle continues to work towards getting off the vent. He is undergoing some more tests today, primarily a bone scan, to make sure he's not fighting a bone infection. His temperature continues to spike during the day and night, and they are treating that appropriately. An Infectious Disease Doc has been added to his medical team to monitor any infections and make sure that all the meds are the right ones to treat him.

We had a meeting with the head of the trauma team and determined that Friday will be the day to plan if he gets sent to a facility with the vent or not. We have learned of a spinal cord injury rehab center at UVA in Charlottesville that will take him with the vent, and the medical team is leaning towards that program.

We'll let you know the test results and more update tonight.
