I am the mum of an 11 month old who has been in hospital for 3 weeks now. He had pneumococcal meningitis/ septicaemia.
He is still on regular antibiotics and pain relief and we have been told there is brain damage.
Whilst being in hospital he has contracts two other cold/flu like viruses and entrovirus (which I have been told is viral meningitis).
I appreciate his immune system will be weak but I am worried, will he fully recovery and how long will it take?
He also cannot hold his head up properly yet or sit up. He seems to have a stiff neck and is in constant pain. It breaks my heart again and again seeing him like this.
Has anyone else had anything similar happen to them (when younger) or your kids?
