This is scary. I thought it wasn't bad because they caught it early, but when his parents tweeted they wrote "Our Timmy is keeping fighting but..." - I hope it's just a language problem, that "but..." seems sort of like it's not going well.
How do you even know you have meningitis? what are the symtoms ?
High fever and nausea. Young babies are most prone to get viral meningitis and at higher risk for death if they get it. The only (???) way to detect it is to do a spinal tap to test the fluid for the virus. For young babies the guidelines are to do a spinal tap. In adults it's easy to mis-diagnose as a cold or flu and send you home from the ER.
