Hello friends and patriots.
My sister was diagnosed with Bacterial Meningitis 2 days ago. She is 31 years, currently hospitalized and I a coma. I am very worried because this is a difficult time for me. We never had such cases of serious illness in our family. I am sorry because I will give information in bits since I am very far from my family right now. I am in Poland for studies and my family is in Kenya. Receiving such news when far is very shocking. I still cannot fathom.
Today she started medication and we are waiting to see how it turns out since she is in a comma. She is just aggressive and I was told she removed the drip syringe twice twice yesterday and they had to tie her so that she can be medicated. I have read some of your stories and I am a bit encouraged though i don't know how this agony will continue. I am so confused and stressed right now because I am so much depended upon by the family and this tragedy did hit us on our low moments. I would like to hear from more recent cases on how people have handled this disease, what to keenly observe and perhaps what to expect as the medication continues. Also, I would like to hear more information or even direct messages from doctors here on board on how we can go about to tame this disease. I will be very grateful to hear from all of you as your single comments will be equally valuable through this difficult time.
Thank you all for now.
