I contracted spinal meningitis when I was about 4 days old before I left the hosptial i was born at. At 7 days old my mother rushed me to the hospital with a 105 temp. I was a military hospital and they made her wait almost 4 hours in the waiting room. By the time they saw me they said it could have easily been minutes close to death. They didnt know what was wrong with me until they did two spinal taps. I was read my last rights twice by the priest and baptized because they knew I was going to die. My head was huge and filled with liquid and i look like an alien. They figured out that it was meningitis more importantly spinal meningitis. It took close to many years before it was put behind me. I was always under opservation for hearing problems and what not and always had tubes in my head and ears and constant ear infections. At that time meningitis cases in infants were not handled well the military hospital i was at had to call the CDC to find out how to handle it. Now onto the present. I never thought much about the fact that this had happened to me when i was born but now it seems alot of things that are wrong with me seem to be tying to this....please help i need to talk to someone or just ne information..thank you i feel so in the dark about whats wrong with me...

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
