That is sad about your friends. I am glad they survived it, though!! I do have a question for you. Do they know for sure it was hib? I mean, I thought before the vax they didn't test for the types? I could be way off, this is just something I have read in my research. I am wondering if it was meningitis and if so, how do they know it Hi and then how do they know it was type B? I am just really curious!
