Immunisation - please read!!
Hi, I haven't been on here for a while... Our little boy was born on the 4th of June and was a healthy little boy for the first 3 weeks of his life. He then developed a cough, which the doctor said not to worry about unless he wasn't weeing, feeding or had a temp, within 4 days we went back to the GP as he could latch on due to his cough. We were sent to A&E and he was diagnosed with potential whooping cough, 3 days at the local hospital and the infection took over his lungs and he was struggling. He was put on a ventilator and rushed to Great Ormond St Hospital and we've been in Intensive Care for 3.5weeks. He is now doing ok, not breathing on his own. it has been the worst month of our lives. I just wanted to put this on here to urge everyone to have their babies immunised when it's time. There is a rise in whooping cough at the moment and I would not wish this on anyone.
