In May 2006 my beautiful boy came down with meningococcal septecimia, he was put under sedation for 10 days and some how he came through it. there must have been angels looking down on him at that time, because he came out of that incredibly hard time, just as perfect as he has always been.
2 years on, he is just like any normal 4 yr old boy! he is excelling in school and just loves life so much.
when i look back at that time, i cant believe it happened! you just dont think it will ever happen to you. but there is always a chance that it might! and it is important to understand that it might.
so please please read up on all of the symptoms of all childhood illnesses, if i hadnt known the symptoms or even this particular illness, my baby boy may not have made it through that ordeal and i think i would have died inside if he hadn't!
please share your experiences :)
