Joost

Joost has been rushed to hospital with acute bacterial meningitis. They're treating him with antibiotics and are considering further surgical procedures. I'm told his condition is serious and he's very, very ill indeed.

Thank you. He was responding so well to the chemo before, we sort of forgot that it would leave him vulnerable to all kinds of opportunistic infections.

Apparently, it's not uncommon for patients who've had brain surgery and are immunocompromised to develop this kind of complication. All we can do now is hope they'll identify the bacterium that's causing it quickly, so they can treat him accordingly.

Thank you. They've given him morphine for the pain, so hopefully he'll have a more comfortable night than the last.
