My son Ollie was three weeks old. Not long after bringing him home and getting into our stride with feeds and sleeps he became unwell he had a very high temperature, a seizure and didn't like bright light. So we took him straight to our local hospital.
The doctors wasted no time with him and did one or two routine tests and suggested we stayed in hospital overnight for further assessment. They ran other tests including a lumbar puncture, which came back as a positive for meningitis.
He stayed in our local hospital for three days, but was then admitted to St Mary's Hospital in Paddington as the seizures could not be controlled. He was intubated and ventilated for 27 hours, with 24 hour nursing in Intensive Care to stop the seizures and let the antibiotics do their thing in curing him.
