At 3am the doctor came in and confirmed that Riley had pneumococcal meningitis and outlined what the treatment would be.
My very vivid memory of the grave look on the doctors faces did not fill me with a great deal of confidence, coupled with the statement that they "will do all they can".
When Chloe was seen by the doctors in the early stages of the disease she was checked many times for neck stiffness, which she did not have. She only showed signs of neck stiffness much later in the course of the infection. I think it is important to point out that the symptoms of meningitis do not all occur and don't always occur at the same time.
Our second experience with meningitis came when Kristian was two and a half years old. We travelled between countries before being told our son had meningococcal septicaemia.
