IT'S been a hell of a 48 hours for the Randoms
What started out midweek with a common tummy bug ended with an ambulance to hospital on Sunday and 18 hours on life support in intensive care. It has been such a scary journey but she is now off all machinery except monitoring and a drip for her medication.
Results are still coming back but the diagnosis is Encephalitis from her tummy bug spreading to her brain.
She has had several fits but they seem to have stopped now shes recovering. We just have to wait and see if there is any damage to her brain though anything extremely debilitating would already be apparent so we are into mild damage territory. 48 hours ago I thought I might have lost my baby girl and now she is throwing soft toys at nurses, watching peppa pig and giggling at her toes again. Its been a roller coaster!
The staff at Southampton Pediatric Intensive Care have been incredible. I could never thank them enough for saving my D from something unspeakable.
I will post an update shortly but for now the immediate danger has passed and we can all breath again and process the most intense 48 hours of my life!
