Journal entry 59--Illness

Describe the most serious illness or accident that you have had.

When my daughter was just 6 weeks old, I came down with viral meningitis. I literally had the worst headache of my life and could feel my brain throbbing whenever I moved. After the doctor figured out what I had, I stayed overnight in the hospital. When I came home the next day, I pretty much stayed lying down for 2 weeks taking Vicodin every 4 hours. There were several women at my church who helped me with my children and dinners. I'm grateful for their service. It was quite a painful illness which I hope to never have again.
