Exposed to Meningitis - UGH!

So - last night I was told my my son's ASD teacher (also our friend) that our son's toddler program director at his school died the night before of meningitis.

First, let me say how much our family loved this wonderful woman. All the kids - atypical and typical - that she has helped in her years with this school and service has been immense. What she has done for our son and whole family has been nothing short of a miricle and we are DEVISTATED by her untimely passing.

She had a slight cold and an ear infection. Next thing we know, she is gone due to meningitis. It is horrible.

Now the issue I have is that she was with my children Thursday and passed on Sunday. My children are not vaxed and I am worried about exposure.

I had to switch to my MAC iBook - as I am now putting the boys to bed.

I have a call placed into the pedi. He has to wait until tomorrow to call the state to see what type she died of. It is state reg, but they were closed today. If it was bacterial, then they might have to go on antibiotics.

Oh Mama, I'm sorry. Meningitis can be such a scary, quick thing. Best of luck to you and your kiddos.

PS- What area of the state are you in? I'm from Belfast and still have lots of family/friends up there...

Thanks so much. I am not taking any chances. The boys are fine now, but it can strike fast.

I am in Westbrook.
