My father who is in his late 70s, was rushed to the hospital with acute Bacteral Meningitis (streptococcus pneumonia), he has been in the Critical Care Unit for approx 4 days of which he has been non responsive since he was admitted and has been on a Ventilator to help him breathe. They are currently giving him doses of Ceftriaxone and Vancomycin (Antibiotics) they are also giving him steroids called Dexamethasone to decrease the inflamAtion around the brain. I am very worried as it has been almost 5 days and there is no change in his mental state. His blood pressure and vitals are good but he is having seizures although at a reduced level. Does anyone know about any of these meds. Or what combination of meds. Worked for you. And what should be a reasonable expectation of recovery time and impact of this terrible disease.
