Sunday 24th October

Sunday was the only bright day we had. The Consultant at Alder Hey was optimistic. He said the CT scan from Friday showed Charlie should make a full recovery. A different doctor told us he was too optimistic and not to pin all our hopes on it so we tried to stay realistic. We did find out that 50% of people with this type of meningitis made a full recovery which is better odds than the doctor at the first hospital gave us. It was all so confusing. We didn’t know what to expect or when we’d know. Charlie’s head hadn’t grown any bigger so they were hopeful there wasn’t any more swelling. They said i would be able to get him out and try and breastfeed him on Monday as they were going to stop sedating him. All in all Sunday was a much more positive day.
