By time she got there Shouachee was spotting quickly and the nurses knew what they saw and rushed her to the Children’s Hospital in Tulsa. She called my brother to come to the ER because my niece wasn’t doing too good. My brother got there as fast as he could and the head doctor took them aside and told them it didn’t look too good and they would try everything to help Shouachee.
Six hours went by and the doctor came and told my sister-in-law my niece wouldn’t make it because it spread through her whole body and it was too late to save her.
Shouachee passed away in the afternoon. Fourteen hours earlier a boy had passed away in the same hospital too. We found out later six victims from the school had the same thing but three of them survived with no problem and were on meds right away. Two of them passed away and the sixth victim was put on life support but had all of his four limbs amputated. He recovered and had surgeries to help him more.
Two years has passed and those memories still hurt and I hope one day this meningitis disease will be cured as I don’t want other families to suffer as much as my family has and others who still hurt from this tragic loss.
Thanks for your time reading my story of my beautiful niece who is a angel and I miss her a lot.
