Say a prayer...


Date: Mon Jun 16 2003 - 07:41:51 PDT

HI all..
I just found out that my 9 day old nephew, Dawson, who is named after my
Dad, has contracted meningitis. This is very serious. His mom had a
kidney infection treated with antibiotics right before he was born, so
he picked it up from her and this is how it has manifested. The first
24-48 hours are critical. If he responds to the antibiotic without
incident, he will probably be ok. THey believe they caught it very
early, but being the internet savvy person that I am, I read about
meningitis in infants...gulp. Please say a prayer if you are so
inclined. No need to flood the list with responses...I know you will do
this if you can. Thanks a million, friends.
