From the time Lila was a baby she always had a runny nose, I was always at the doctors but all I was told is she had the flu.
Then not long after her second birthday she became very unwell, had a high temperature and a sore neck. She was rushed to hospital and was suffering from meningitis. After strong antibiotics our girl was back to her old self. Her nose continued to run and doctors just put it down to the flu.
Then within five months she had slipped down again – instead of wanting to run around she lay in the lounge, her temperature was high and she was really pale. We took her back to hospital and this time they ran more tests and found a pinhole in her brain which was allowing the bacteria to get in. She spent the next six weeks in hospital on strong medication to kill all the infection then finally our girl was back.
