Remember Spanish Teacher and her beautiful twin girls? One of the girls is home now with her family but the other one contracted viral pneumonia and was re-intubated a few days ago. She is on the mend but still on the ventilator. The girls turned four weeks old yesterday and she still hasn't gotten to go home to her family who is anxiously awaiting her arrival.
And my cousins five year old son is at Children's Hospital with bacterial meningitis, a strep infection in his bones that is baffling the infectious disease specialists and possible brain damage from the brain swelling that was so bad they performed surgery to put a shunt in his head. He will be in hospital for two to six MONTHS according to what the doctors know right now and needs all the help he can get. His parents are worried sick and they also have a nine month old baby to take care of.
It's so scary.
