Alexis was admitted to hospital due to feeding issues at 3 and a half months old she was rejecting bottles and she had thrown up once.
We were told by the paediatrician not to worry and she was put on a drip and antibiotics for a suspected urinary tract infection. We were told she would have a lumbar puncture performed that evening as a precautionary measure.
By the time evening came Alexis had settled down and started feeding again she had no temperature and all her vitals were perfect so the doctor decided to postpone the lumbar puncture until the morning.
Alexis had a bottle at 12 am that night and settled down back to sleep. At 4am the nurse on duty checked her blood pressure and her vitals again which all came back normal. I put Alexis in her cot and she fell back to sleep
I then had a nap when I woke I seen Alexis was lying flat in the cot, which was unlike her as she suffered from acid reflux. I got up to check on her the first thing I did was touch her face and straight away I felt she was ice cold, so I picked her and when I did her whole body was completely limp. Normally she’d curl up her legs when I’d pick her up. This time she didn't. I knew in my heart she was gone
I hit the emergency button and ran into the hall and screamed for help a nurse ran down and took her out of my arms and told me to wait outside while she paged other nurses for help.
What happened next was a bit of a blur. Two nurses came running, one ran into Lexis' room, the other pulled me away to ring my family and Lexi's dad to get them to the hospital.
While we were standing there one of the nurses came running out of Lexis' room and went on the phone and called the crash team. She rang them three more times before the crash team arrived.
