This is a snippet of what life has been like for Louie in the last 5 years, and we know there is a lot more to come. The next thing being on the 13th April where we will attend a meeting at Alder Hey to discuss 4 more operations to try and lengthen Louie's legs as they have not grown in the last 2 years.
Don't get me wrong, Louie IS a happy little boy and as his Mother I try my hardest to let him experience everything possible in life but the one thing I want to gain from sharing this with you all is that Meningitis not only kills but it ruins the life of survivors too. Vaccines should be used and should be available to everyone!!! But not only use the Vaccines also stay vigilant, know what the symptoms are and get checked out if you are concerned. Everything listed above that Louie has had to go through and more is after being treated within 30 Mins of the first spots appearing!!! Please share and let others know how deadly this disease is xxx
