Our beautiful, precious son Alfie passed away on 2nd Dec 2013. He was only 2 weeks old and had septicaemia.
After not feeding on Friday 29th Nov we took him to A&E at Halifax that evening, his vital signs were checked but nothing untoward was found. Four hours later, whilst we were waiting for a bed in the children’s ward, Alfie started to have fits or seizures. The doctor came and assessed him immediately, she was very concerned about his condition and suspected that he had meningitis. Much to our disbelief he was rushed to the intensive care unit and we were told he was very ill.
