Hi, my name is cheryl im writing this post as my daughter Alia whos 10 weeks old now, but at 17 days old i was told she had VM, i could'nt believe it, as id taken her to the Dr's 4 times and was told thare was nothing wrong with her, and they also told me first time mothers are allways like this thinkin there is something up with their newborn babies. So i thought ok i trust what they say. But back at home Alia was the same, she had a very high temp, cold hands and feet unusal cry, vomiting id said all this to the Dr's, so the next morning on christmas eve i took her back to the Dr's and they said exactly the samething that she was fine! I wasnt happy coming from the Dr's as a new there was something not right with my baby girl so i told myself if Alia was the same after christmas id take her back, but that night she got worse and worse for me so i rushed her to the hospital and after few hours i was told she had VM and i was lucky i took her in as she was very ill and she would'nt have made it till morning. But thank god she had some fight in her and came over the worse after 4 days on antibiotics! Then i was told alia was well enough to come home, i didnt get any after care of them and she's not been the same baby since bringing her home. As iv not been through this myself and i dont knw if she's still in pain after havin VM
