Thank you everyone...
I heard from my daughter this morning,but awaiting an update hopefully later.

She had a more peaceful night after loads more antibiotics.They don't think she has septicaemia as there doesn't appear to be a rash,but it is definitely meningitis strep B which affect new babies from the mother apparently....been reading up about it...

There are 4 other babies in the hospital with the same and as the sister said to them....they're all going home!
Both parents stayed overnight....will hear more later.
Do appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers.Ive got friends from all over the world praying for her.

That seems really positive Brenda, try and get some rest, I know it's difficult with babies or even your own children. You always want it to be you that is ill not them.

Let's hope each day brings better news Brenda, it's good that there is no sign of septicaemia and I am glad little Princess had a better night. Hopefully last night will have been even better and her little body can rest and respond to the medication to fight the illness.

I was trying to show a positive note, that altho Harry was very poorly he came off light with just the hearing problem that hardly affects his life. Of course there are newer and stronger drugs now and more knowledge of the illness.

Best wishes to the little one and her family.

Had a call at midnight from daughter to say she had been back home to bring granddaughter to get clothes etc as they were both staying again at hospital.There was an improvement ,but they should know today a bit more as the tests from the cultures etc take 48 hours.

She was a lot calmer and didn't cry out as much when they washed her .
2 of the other girls are due at dentist today and she is ringing to see if its alright to go as they might need some medication due to this illness first.

Baby responded o her daddy when he talks to her,which didn't happen before.
