Great news about my 11 day old great nephew, Dawson. I told you
recently that he had come down with meningitis at 9 days old...a
terrible blow to all of us, as meningitis in infants is horrible. THe
good news is, he is still in the hospital on antibiotics, but they are
telling the family now that they can find NOTHING to indicate any
neurological or brain damage. They say that by bringing him to the
hospital at the true first sign of illness (fever) quick action has
enabled the antibiotic to get the infection under control quickly.
There has been no brain swelling, brainwaves are normal, and he is
eating well and gaining weight. THey hope to release him by this
weekend. He must stay on antibiotics for 3-4 weeks, so he's not
completely out of the woods yet, as the antibiotics can also cause
problems. THanks for the prayers. I think it's a miracle that he's ok.
