It is just over a year since Stone fell ill with this terrible disease. He is now brain damaged and nearly blind and has also been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. You can catch up with his progress on his facebook page in the link above.

Both myself (at 23 days old) and my daughter (at 6 1/2 months old) had bacterial meningitis and were very poorly though in the end were both fine..... And neither of us had the rash!

The rash is also usually one of the later symptoms, by then the patient will be looking very ill.

Ds gets a viral rash quite often which is non fading very similar to the menigitis rash, but isn't really very ill with it, which is reassuring.

just want to bump this thread for those of you who have not yet read it

Ladies, could I please ask you to read, like the page and share this story. We are trying to spread the word that some doctors make mistakes and the rash that everyone looks for does not always appear
