I don't pray much... and I ask for prayers even less.

But I just got a text from one of my best friends saying that her 9 month old daughter has meningitis. The only other person I know who's child got meningitis lost her son. I'm a mess right now and can't even imagine how my girlfriend must be feeling.

Please keep her in your thoughts today.

They're treating her for bacterial, so I guess they have reason to assume that's what it is. I'm just desperately hoping that they caught it early enough to treat her successfully.

I know how awful it can be to watch your friends go through hard things like this.

My bestfriend's daughter, my god daughter passed away so suddenly from a seizure at 15 months and it destroyed us all.

All you can do is be there. There isn't much you can say, you just have to be there if she needs to talk. If she doesn't, just being there is enough.

I am praying for you, your friend and her little girl. I hope, hope, hope things work out.

T&Ps to your friend and her baby....one of my good friends survived catching bacterial meningitis as a young child (so there are success stories) but it is serious for sure, KUP on how baby is doing, I hope the doctor's caught this quickly.

So scary. I can't imagine what your friend is going through
I'm not much of a pray-er, but I am sending lots of positive thoughts her way.

How scary! I actually know 2 kids who had this (but got it when they were a bit older), and they survived. Hopefully they caught it in time and this little girl recovers quickly.

I heard from her about an hour ago. They are treating it aggressively, but doctors have been ominously silent about her chance of recovery. I just can't imagine... that poor, beautiful little girl. My friend lives in Austin and due to kids, pregnancies, babies etc. I haven't seen her in quite a while. I haven't even MET her daughter, though I feel like I know her.

Ugh. I feel like I should be there.
