About the Book

This is a warts-and-all account in letter form of a five-month-old baby afflicted with one of the worst forms of meningitis and surviving but being left with two thirds brain damage. This happened in Fiji, and the family traveled to the US to seek treatment. This book describes that treatment and the effects of the brain damage in extreme hyperactivity and epilepsy. The book sets out the strain on the family as they seek to cope as their lives unfold in two places—in the US and then in Australia.
