How is your mother today? Has there been improvement? I was 56 when I contracted pneumococcal bacterial meningitis and had a similar reaction of starting to get better, only to relapse. After several days, I did wake up and start speaking again. I had no idea what had happened. I still have residual effects, mainly headaches and trouble with concentration, but I'm here. Please write again.


My son who is 9month old is also in a coma for almost 3weeks and I wonder if he will ever wake up has TB meningitis
