http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-44302469 A one year old baby with Meningitis after suffering multiple apmutations is due to come home. It makes me realise how lucky I was. After being rushed into the old Birmingham Childrens Hosptal, I was diagnosed with Meningitis. I was Baptised in hospital as the Doctors didn't expect me to make the next day. As that was in 1950 I know just how lucky I was. A district Nurse spotted my symptoms and rushed me into town in her Morris Minor. This was after our Doctor told my mother "not to worry he's just got a chill". I used to remind that Doctor of that at every opportunity.
