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.

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.

No matter what happened 20 years ago, in Liz's post, advances in medicine have been terrific.

A terrible shock for you and your family, you know she is in the best hands in a hospital that you are confident with.

I do hope you have managed to get some rest, will be thinking of you and the little one today and waiting for good news xx

Bless her, poor little mite, to have to suffer at such a young age. Her parents and all the family must be devastated but I am sure the hospital is doing the very best for her and she will come through this.

A neighbour of mine some years ago, had the same thing with her new baby girl, she was fine after treatment, altho her mother fell downstairs with her later and the baby had a broken leg to contend with. She is now a healthy happy teenager and no ill effects.

I looked after a little boy and his brother 20 years ago, Harry had meningitis when very small (before I cared for him) and lost the hearing in one ear, he managed very well and you wouldn't have known there was a problem as he had grown up compensating by just turning his head so his good ear was closer to the sound. He is now a young man in his twenties and doing fine.

Will think lots of positive thoughts for little Princess and hope to hear good news soon.
Try not to worry and make yourself unwell, Brenda
