Hey there. As I mentioned before, my little cousin has been battling meningitis. It's been a tough ordeal for the family since it's taken a huge toll my little cousin as well as our family. It's tough to see a 5 year old, strapped to her bed, with feeding and breathing tubes coming out of her, all while being heavily sedated. Well, I'm happy to say that she's doing a lot better.
We were worried that the sickness did not affect her brain too much. I don't remember if it is viral or bacteria but the sickness did cause some speech loss, but my lil cousin is smiling, walking, playing, and doing what little girls should be allowed to do. Albeit, in the hospital, but it's better than being drugged up or strapped down to your bed due to involuntary body movements. The doctors have mentioned that she may be allowed to go home very soon. She's still there for some observation and the speech loss is something that she can regain with some therapy. We're hoping for her to be released by her birthday later this month, or at least for Thanksgiving. If all turns out well, our family will have something special to be thankful of this year. Later!
