Bacterial Meningitis? sure, I'll try it...

So if cancer couldn't kill me, can Bacterial Meningitis??

On Wednesday, I started to feel nauseous and i felt feverish. Same thing on Thursday, along with a migraine. Friday and Saturday, same, same. By Sunday the migraine pain was completely unbearable and my neck was really stiff.  Off the ER Ashley and I went...

11 hours and a spinal tap later, I bought myself Bacterial Meningitis and probably a 4 day stay at OLOL. 

I was concerned after the doctor explained how Bacterial Meningitis is potentially much worse than Viral, but no one prepared me for Quarantine.

I am enclosed behind an extra set of massive heavy doors and all medical staff wear masks, gloves and disposable smocks upon entry - I lost if for a few minutes last night when I saw the nurse, but I'm handling it much better today.

My room package includes Internet and movies...what more could a girl want?

I'm more upset that the school counselor called today because Morgan was upset at school.  Luckily Shane met her for lunch and eased some of her anxiety.

Some days we sure get more than we bargained for...

I'll keep you posted...
