My DD (7mths) was taken into hospital yesterday as she had had a high temp for 4 days and was generally unwell. After a lumper puncture this morning they now think it is a strain of meningitis. They say it can be treated with antibiotics and did talk to me about it, but basically i was in such a blind panic i didn't pay that much attention. I am now at home (DH is with DD) and am working myself up into a frenzy. Has any one any experience of this? Iknow it is not the really dangerous kind, but she is my angel and i am soo worried. Any advice, experiences etc would be appreciated - ASAP!!!
