On Sunday 6th September Lee was discharged.
On Monday 7th September Linda and Grant noticed a rash on Lee's feet, legs and head and mentioned it to the midwife, who thought it was down to the washing powder or new clothes that had been bought. The rash was not present three days later when Lee was admitted to hospital.
On Tuesday 8th September Linda told the midwife that Lee's eye's were rolling, but was told this was common.
On Thursday 10th September Lee went rigid and, after talking on the phone with the community midwife, Linda took Lee to see a GP who advised that Lee should be taken to hospital.
Lee was admitted to The Sick Kids in Edinburgh that evening and at seven days old was diagnosed with listeria meningitis. He was treated with antibiotics and had a hydrocephalus shunt fitted. He had a long stay in hospital. At the time Linda and Grant were furious that Lee's condition was not spotted earlier, but were told by the hospital that this type of meningitis was very rare in so young a baby and difficult for medical or nursing staff to diagnose.
