Back in the middle of September, I asked for your help in this post: Good Karma Needed. Sophia, the granddaughter of my friend, colleague and right arm Yenny, had been diagnosed with meningitis shortly after birth. That is not a nice diagnosis.
Lots of you responded with “Likes” and good wishes in comments. Thank you.
And it worked! Because today Sophia is at home with her mom and grandma Yenny. A beautiful, happy, healthy little baby girl.
It turns out, Sophia got a false-positive reading of meningitis. She never had it, but it took over a week to be sure. Sophia was given antibiotics for 14 days, because once you start antibiotics you must keep taking the full course — whether you are a child or an adult — you can’t stop mid-course or antibiotic resistance can develop. Sophia was released showing no ill effects whatsoever.
Thank you all for your good thoughts. I am often impressed by the big hearts of my blogging buddies, and you guys really came through this time. Now it’s my turn; I’m sending good karma your way.
