We are on day 6 of the very heavy duty antibiotics. It seems that daughter's temperature has calmed down a bit, though her chest is still very noisy. She does have pneumonia, so she is going nowhere until we know it's beaten.
A girl on the ward died. We knew her and her mum. I held up in front of daughter, but as soon as I left hospital to come home (it's her dad's turn to stay), I cried all the way back in the car and for a good couple of hours after that. She was a child - a beautiful girl with everything in front of her. She had fought with this illness for years. It is so very cruel.
My thoughts are with her family and her friends. I am very, very sorry for their loss.
