On Friday at 12.30am my world nearly stopped. The words ‘Babe, I think I need to go to the hospital’ still make me shudder.

Its hard to explain what happened. One minute the Boy was fine, the next….the next…. the next his head felt like it was going to explode, he couldn’t see properly and his leg was jerking so violently he was in agony.

I did what I had to do. I called ambos, I packed his bag, I found his wallet and I just held him. He had no colour. He wasn’t breathing right. A thought crossed my mind that I will loose him. That I’m 6 weeks pregnant and I will loose him.

He had a CT scan of his brain, a CT angio and a lumbar puncture. I held it all pretty well together till after the lumbar puncture. He did so well, even if he was pretty much out of it. Until….

Until it was almost over when his vital plummeted and he quietly muttered to me ‘i dont feel so good’. He lost all colour. The heart rate when down to 35 and pulse ox to 82. I held it together.

I held it together till he was back with us. Till he was back to snoozing happily. When I sat down in my chair and just wept. I was scared and so very tired. But the moment passed and I was back looking after my boy, father of this little being growing inside of me.

He’ll be ok. Will have more tests today. We’ll get through this together.
