Katie was our first born and a healthy, happy baby. When she was three months old, as we were having a 30th birthday party for her dad Steve, Katie developed a high temperature. She gradually got worse as the night progressed and became very sleepy and was hard to wake, and when she did, she cried out in pain. I stayed awake with her throughout the night and we gave her Calpol to try and control her temperature, however, she started to refuse her bottles and generally got worse.
First thing in the morning we took her to the emergency doctors and were told the Calpol was working and she probably had a viral infection and to see how she goes. But that if we continued to be concerned, we could to her to A&E. My mum came round at lunchtime and we all agreed Katie needed to be seen straight away. She was limp and dehydrated, so we took her to the hospital.
