We were home four days until one night Eli started screaming all night again. When we checked his temperature we found out he had a fever and it was climbing. We gave him Tylenol and took off to the hospital. They admitted him and we stayed in the hospital for a total of 28 days. On September 11, 2010 they discharged him with the warning that anytime within the next year the infection could happen again. Also they were concerned that he would be blind, deaf, or have learning disabilities ... or all the above. We were terrified the entire year.
Today Eli is a happy, healthy two year old who has no effects from the meningitis.
