A child died over the weekend from what they think is viral meningitis

We got a call from the Levittown School District today - a kid in the elementary school passed away this weekend.

I am so sad to hear this - and so scared at the same time. I hate that you have no warning and it just happens out of nowhere and takes a childs life.

Lots of prayers for the family and in my worst nightmare I couldn't imagine what they are going through right now.

My DH had spinal meningitis when he was only 2 months old, and was in the hospital for several weeks I believe. I don't know the difference between spinal & viral, but they're both so scary.

Re: A child died over the weekend from what they think is viral meningitis

He died from viral meningitis? Are you sure it wasn't bacterial meningitis? I thought viral meningitis usually subsides on its own and generally does not cause death.

They said bacterial meningitis was ruled out but viral meningitis cannot be ruled out for a few days! Chat Icon Link to District Site

No, it's not but he works with the mother of the child and it's one of his buildings he runs for the afterschool program.

It's just so horrible, I can't stop thinking about this poor family Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon
