Hospital update

This morning the doctor informed me that my little guy has viral meningitis from the enterovirus infection. They tell me this is not as bad as the bacterial kind and it just needs to run its course.

Thanks for the prayers and well-wishes. I just want my baby well and at home.

Oh, poor sweet baby! He's taking you for a ride right away- watch out for this one

I'm glad it's not bacterial, but I know it's still so stressful. Wishing your sweet little one quick healing. I hope he is well soon.

I am so very sorry that your family is going through this. Even the smallest sniffle in a newborn is scary, and this diagnosis is so much more terrifying. Thankfully, you acted quickly in getting him to the ER so that treatment could begin right away. Sending lots of {{{hugs}}}, prayers, and positive thoughts your way so that your sweet boy will be better very soon. 🙏🏻🤞🏻

Very scary. We have some experience with H-flu and pneumococcal meningitis. Very very scary and dangerous.

Iím praying for you guys. Keep us updated. Are you having a consultation with an immune specialist to see if maybe there is an immune delay or immaturity?

Is he in a childrenís hospital? Wherever he is.. I know itís the right place .. because they will take care of him. Saying and sending so many prayers. Iíd love to know babies first name so I can name him in my prayers. However, I understand privacy too.

Lots of hugs! Xoís

Thank you everyone. I finally went home last night to get some sleep.

My little boyís name is Caden. He is staying at a large childrenís hospital downtown. He is in the best medical hands possible.

Dr tells me he could have picked up the virus anywhere and some people may carry it and it not even be symptomatic, but to a newborn it causes an infection. He hasnít been in contact with many people, but we have had some dr appts so possibly picked up the virus there.
