Sadly we lost our grandson Tyler on 6/11/2015 at 23.22pm. He became ill on the Monday after nursery. He was taken to the doctors by my daughter on the Tuesday who said he had a viral infection and to treat it with calpol and nurofen for the fever. On the Thursday he seemed even worse and his temperature was 39.4 and he had difficulty breathing. My daughter took him back to the doctors in the afternoon and the doctor said it was still a viral infection and if he was no better to bring him back on Monday. On the Friday he was at his dad's and when he woke his lips were purple and he looked grey in complexion. He was taken to Luton & Dunstable hospital where his was given antibiotics in resus. They did all they could to try to help him but they said he needed more specialist treatment and would be transferred to Great Ormond Street. My daughter and Tyler's dad went with him to Great Ormond Street but unfortunately they couldn't save him. He died of streptococcal A and Sepsis. My daughter said he didn't even look like Tyler he was purple in colour and really bloated. We had never heard of sepsis until then and can't believe doctors don't warn you what to look out for. He was only 33 months old.

Hi 'newbie'

 

I am so sorry for your loss.

 

I lost my mother to Sepsis just over 2 years ago. She had flu like symptoms, and ended up on life support. Horrific.

 

Awareness is everything.

 

Please email me if you'd like to chat.

 

Regards

Dear Josie,

I was so sorry to hear about your grandson Tyler. It's heartbreaking to learn of another little one who has died because of sepsis. If it would help to talk to one of the support team at the UKST, do get in touch on 0800 389 6255 or email me on libby@sepsistrust.org

Take care,

Libby.

Sarah thank you so much for your support. At first we were all in shock because it happened so quickly. He was such a clever little boy, so intelligent and full of life. Seems so unfair that he should be taken so young. We all miss him so much.

Hi Josie,

 

So very sorry for you loss but I know just what you must all be going through as I lost my eldest son aged 24 in February to Sepsis, its just devastating and heartbreaking. With Josh we had no warning signs at all he was/seemed fit and well and his usual self. Take care Josie.

 

Love

Hi Josie

 

Sepsis is horrific, and it is frightening that's the public are so unaware how quickly it takes hold, and the devastating consequences.

 

I hope your friends and family are there for you, and that you are getting support? Don't forget to take care of yourself, and don't neglect your needs too.

 

Sarah
