Looking at him now, it’s hard to believe that it’s only a year since Logan was staying on our Intensive Care Unit (ICU).Baby logan in ICU supported by equipment

After being born five weeks prematurely, Logan was just a few weeks old when his mum, Fiona, took him to her local hospital when he wasn’t feeding.

“He wasn’t himself and at the hospital he started to deteriorate and there were moments when he would stop breathing. He needed more specialist care so we were transferred to the ICU at Sheffield Children’s.”

On the ICU, Logan was diagnosed with meningitis. This is when the protective membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord – the meninges – become infected. Logan spent a week having treatment on ICU before being able to return home.

Fiona said: “It was a very upsetting and worrying time, but he has recovered well. The staff who looked after him were brilliant; friendly, lovely and they kept me going too. They gave me the support I needed with Logan being so poorly.

“A year on now he has had his first birthday and is a bouncy, cheeky little boy. Thank you; we will never forget everyone who helped my little man. Keep doing the amazing work you do.”

Thank you for sharing your story Fiona and Logan – it’s great to hear how he’s doing a year on!
