My daughter was 5 week old on 23/6/12when she had strep b meningitis. In the evening she was very restless and started vomiting and rolling back. We took her to A & E and they just grabbed her away from us and started giving her antibiotics and her lumber puncture. She spend one day at royal Berkshire hospital.she started fitting in the hospital. They made arrangements to transfer her in John Radcliffe Oxford intensive care unit as they don't have for babies here. Next morning she was ventilated in Oxford . We just could not believe and we were shocked what is happening. It was so painful to see her in such a pain. Drs said at one point that we will try to save her life. She was ventilated in Oxford and spended two weeks there. She was fighting for her life and we just felt so helpless. She spended three months in hospital altogether . She is recovering very well now ,lots of people involve with her. She has lost her eyesight bcz of meningitis. In the biggining ,Drs said she has lost her hearing as well but I could clearly see and feel that she was able to hear. They did two very advance tests to check her hearing and with god blessing ,result came back positive. She has passed her hearing test. It's still hurt a lot that she can not see as other babies can see. But I m very great full of God she is still with us. She is our little miracle. Plz remember her in ur prayers as we know ,we can't say anything definite about babies. Miracle happens and may be she is able to see soon. She is able to see sparkly things and lights.
