A Moot primary school head girl, who was admitted to a hospital in the Free State two weeks ago while on holiday with her family, will be back at school this Wednesday.

Minjone Muller (13), head girl at Laerskool Wonderboom-Suid, was admitted to the hospital with a headache and very high fever.

Initially it was suspected that she had meningitis.

However, her mother, Anna, said according to test results received this week, it was not the case.

Anna told Rekord on Tuesday that the family were still in the Free State and would be returning home that evening.

She said Minjone would be back at school on Wednesday.

“We are very relieved that our daughter pulled through and that she is recovering well,” she said.

Anna said they would take Minjone to a doctor for further consultation, adding that she still suffered from frequent headaches.

“We are still not sure what exactly is wrong with her so we are hoping to get answers soon,” she said.

“I hope that it is not serious.”

Her symptoms started two weeks ago and “just kept on getting worse,” according to Anna.

“Around 02:00 that morning, I decided to take her to the nearest state hospital when her symptoms got out of control.”

Anna said the doctors were not exactly sure what was wrong at the time, but prescribed medication to treat Minjone’s symptoms.

Minjone was taken for a lumbar puncture and blood tests to determine if it was meningitis.

Anna said Minjone was an academic top achiever and did shot put.

“She and her father also spend a lot of time together in sports,” she said.

“They helped out at the Grizzlies Rugby club in the west of Pretoria.”

Minjone and her family had been Wonderboom South residents for years, but are temporarily living with family in Centurion.

“We truly believe that she will fully recover.”
