He tested positive the next day for GBS; we had never heard of it and were for a short time relieved that they knew what was wrong. My husband looked it up that night on the net (GBSS) only to realise how serious the situation was.
The next day we were informed that this had developed into meningitis. We were devastated.
By the end of the week he was showing signs of improvement and there was talk of him coming off the ventilator the next day.
When we arrived the next day, full of hope, things took a turn for the worst. He had started fitting and proceeded to do so all day. The only way to control this, after trying every other drug, was by putting him into a drug-induced coma.
