Doctors had received blood tests back and were not happy with the cell markers, they sent my little 5lb baby for a lumbar puncture. So much was going on - I won't lie I did not have a clue what all this meant, how, what, why etc. Results came back and it was confirmed Arthur had contracted meningitis and was to be treated immediately.
We spent a further 2.5 weeks in hospital where he was put in isolation and treated. He underwent constant tests, numerous checks and countless lines and drips. It all seemed so fast, so heavy and so, so much to take in! Not only was I getting over sepsis, an emergency c section; my premature bundle had been hit hard with so many hurdles; so many fights and so many diseases and after nearly a month of staying in hospital we were able to return home to my husband and my toddler - Arthur’s dad and Arthur’s best friend and brother.
Since our discharge Arthur has had several follow up appointments and it's safe to say he really is our hero! So far so good our King Arthur, a true little fighter and warrior!
I have attached several pictures of our story and we have celebrated Arthur’s 1st birthday- 3rd of August- as a family!
