Mingo's condition upgraded to fair

Purdue forward Drey Mingo’s condition was upgraded to fair this morning.

Mingo remains hospitalized while being treated for bacterial meningitis. As of this morning, the specific strain of bacteria causing the illness had not been announced.

“Fair” condition is defined as vital signs being stable, within normal limits and with favorable indicators.

Mingo saw a doctor on Monday and Tuesday for cold symptoms before being admitted to the hospital Tuesday afternoon. She’s being treated with antibiotics, and her parents are with her in the hospital.

The Boilermakers, who canceled a trip to play in a tournament in Mexico upon learning of Mingo’s illness, will resume practice this afternoon.
