I noticed Dara's breathing was starting to change, so I called Tom. Dara did a dirty nappy, so I went to change him, he closed his eyes and I couldn't wake him, so I said I'm ringing the out of hours doctor. We went to him and I saw Dara had a big purple blotch under his ear and pin prick marks on his chest.
We went into the doctor who had NO INTEREST in treating Dara right, so he wrote a letter to A&E and let me drive him myself. I got to the hospital at 8.55. At 9 they ran with Dara into a room and said they suspected meningitis.
From that time on Dara went downhill, he had three cardiac arrests,and his organs were failing. Sadly at 1.30 the same day Dara fell asleep forever - there was no more that could have being done.
