We had our beautiful son Keane on January 22nd 1998, he loved life and always full of chat to everyone he met.
He started school September 2002 and just loved it. He was a healthy lil fella one or two chest/ear infections but I didn't think anything of them doctor said it's normal especially starting school.
On March 31st our day was like any other Keane was fine all day, later that evening I checked on him and he was sitting on the floor beside his bed and said he had a headache, he had a high temp so we gave him calpol but it didn't seem to bring it down we rang the doc on call and I explained his symptoms he told me to give him more calpol and cool him down with a damp cloth.
That Morning of April 1st (my birthday) he was so quiet and looked worse we brought him to the doctor and they told us to go to emergency department in the hospital, as I was giving his details they took him from me and examined him they gave him plenty of medication but nothing worked and he was too weak for a lumbar puncture, they told us they thought it was Meningitis and ran more tests, I was thinking whatever happens it will be ok and we'll cope...little did we know it would not be ok...they had sedated him but after 12 hrs he hadn't woke up, we knew it wasn't good by then ,although the hospital were great and kept theirs and my family's hopes up I felt he had already passed.
