    Thanks to all of you who prayed for me and expressed your care and concern over the past two weeks.

    In late May I had a case of pneumonia. It was an unpleasant sickness, of course, but nothing terribly out of the ordinary. The antibiotics were effective and I recovered and felt better. Very soon afterward, however, I started feeling sick again and it got worse very quickly over the course of 12 hours. My wife took me to the ER at Northside Hospital where a cat scan and a spinal tap led to a diagnosis of viral meningitis, an illness which is very serious and often fatal. I was put on three strong antibiotics, all at very high dosage, and mostly slept, connected to an IV machine for the next few days. By this Tuesday I felt well enough to stand up and walk around, and yesterday was discharged and was able to return home. I'm still moving slowly, but I am able to work at my desk without any trouble so I am beginning to get caught up on work.

    The cause of the meningitis is not certain, but it could have been the same virus that triggered the pneumonia, or it could have been what is called drug-induced meningitis. Interestingly, the antibiotic used to treat the pneumonia (Sulfamethoxazole) has been known in very rare cases to induce meningitis. Or it could have come from an outside source such as a mosquito.

    Thankfully, recovery is expected to be complete eventually, with no long term adverse effects. Thanks to all of you for your prayers and concerns, to my TA's who are helping to get caught up on the grading and the emails, and to the very kind doctors and staff at Northside Hospital.

    Sincerely,
    Derek Owens
