Yeah, it's hard, coz I've actually been warned against this whole drama. A friend's older child passed a cold to her newborn and a midwife I know told her don't go in if you know where she got the cold coz they will do this meningitis drama. So as soon as they said meningitis and lumbar puncture, I knew we were in the wheel of hysteria. Our sitch was different because of the fontanel, which I couldn't gage how serious a symptom that actually was, seems quite serious but then I was in the hospie with just that one sided perspective with no real info of my own. And time was of the essence if indeed it was the big bad M so I couldn't exactly check out and go home and research til I felt comfy. So... we were in it, and I knew from the start it was probably BS, but I didn't know for *sure* it was BS so we did the whole damn thing. I also didn't know how bad it would be. It was bad.
