Isaak - Meningitis

  • Isaak had meningitis when he was 2 months old. To this day we do not know if it was bacterial or viral. All his numbers indicated bacterial, but no bacteria grew in the samples. So once again my second kid stumped the doctors. He too had that sick cry, which was all too similar to Mica's sick cry. His white blood cell count was high too. He had to get a spinal tap, an EEG, 2 IV's put in and a lot of blood drawn. He went home on home IV antibiotics. I guess we caught it early, so we're lucky, but at the time I didn't feel so lucky. I felt unlucky to have 2 major things happen to my babies. Now I feel lucky to have my healthy baby back again. We now know all the Infectious Disease Doctors in Omaha (there are only 3).
