@Barbiestylez:  Omg when I read the part where you said “SHE PASSED!!” my heart sunk because I thought you meant she passed away…scared me!!  But that is so super scary and I’m sorry that you and your family have had to walk this out over the past week, but what a wonderful blessing that your mom has made a miraculous recovery!  I will be praying for her and for your family and trusting that she’ll be back to normal in no time 🙂 I will hug my mama a little tighter the next time I see her!

So very sorry to hear how sick she was but it’s a blessing that she is doing so much better! I am a nurse and did critical care for about 12 years and I have seen patients that did not fare as well. Also, I have to agree with what you said about telling your loved ones how much they mean to you. I lost my momma 2 years ago at age 60, it was sudden and unexpected and you would not believe how many times I wish I could talk to her one more time…

God bless your family 🙂

@TriciaG:  Agree!  My mom passed away nearly 4 yrs. ago. -and even last night I was dreaming that it was my birthday and I was missing her.  I miss her even in my sleep. 

 

@Barbiestylez:  So glad that your mom made it and is making a remarkable recovery.

Glad your mom pulled through! Bacterial meningitis is no joke. She’s a fighter 🙂

That’s so scary, I’m so glad she pulled through. She must be a strong lady!

Hopefully you and your family has been vaccinated so you don’t get it too? I went to college in MA and they require it by law for all incoming students (the infection spreads easily in close quarters like dorms), but I wouldn’t be surprised if it isn’t as commonly done in other areas.
