She continued to fit all the way to the hospital. Once we were there, all the doctors and nurses were rushing around trying to stabilise her whilst I watched. She was given antibiotics straight away and put on a drip. She eventually stopped fitting and was moved up to the children's ward.
The paediatric doctor came to see us and told us that she suspected that Isabella had pneumococcal meningitis due to the fitting down one side of her body, and they would confirm the diagnosis with a lumbar puncture. We never thought that she would have meningitis because in the media the symptoms always say to look out for a rash and she didn't have one, it was such a shock. The doctor said she was optimistic as they caught it quickly and already started her on antibiotics, and she also required steroids for a few days.
