My son in law (fishing partner) has Neisseria meningitidis and thanks to a misdiagnoses from our local hospital it has moved to his brain and cause swelling in the brain . he cannot function at all and is in a coma at st.louis university hospital . They are saaying he probably wont make it and if he does he could be deaf , mute , mentally retarded , and always have seizers . This has been a mighty blow to my family and his . All the prayers possible is needed on this one .
