Stumbleine you poor thing, don't be so hard on yourself, we should be able to trust the doctors and nurses that care for us and our children.
I am so glad your little one is fine now, how scary it must have been for you and your DH. Big you did do the right thing by monitoring your child and getting the medical staff to keep looking at your DD which did result in her getting the blood transfusion she needed. Chin up, you have a beautiful and healthy 9 month because you DID look out for her.

What an awful frightening time for you. I agree with the PP. You DID look out for your DD. You questioned it, the Nurse told you it was on her chart. This was their mistake, not yours. You got her help every time she needed it, and you being there with her saved her life.
I hope you can forgive yourself.

Thank you for the replies Twin and Cali. It took me most of the day to calm down and stop crying at the drop of a hat but ive put the thoughts and emotions away again where they belong. I called DH and had a cry while DD was napping.
I know this is how I should see it and think of it but its so hard sometimes.
I think parents are their own worst critics sometimes.

I really do hope that you can forgive yourself one day. You trusted the professionals and you did everything you possibly could. Though I must admit that if I was in your shoes, I would probably blame myself and wonder "what if I'd ....." as well. Like I said, we parents are great at blaming ourselves.

Stumbliene great big hugs Hun I know exactly how you feel. My son had reconstructive surgery on his privates at 9 months old. Two days later I knew something wasn't right so I called up and took him back in to see the registrar who assisted the surgery. He took some of the dressings off and said it was fine ah blah blah. Two days later at home he vommited everywhere and then went limp. He was completely unresponsive for over 8 minuets. Scariest Time of my life. We were transferred from our local hospital back to the royal children's and places on a drip of iv anti biotics. The register came down and still said it wasn't infected and it must of been something else. We stayed the night up on the ward on iv antibiotics As the professor who was in charge of the surgery wanted to see us. After a night of iv antibiotics he looked heaps better and I thought the surgeon was going to think I was over reacting, but the surgeon took one look and was horrified. We spent anther week in there and he Had to have more surgery a few months later because of the way it healed with the infection.
Anyway I just wanted to share with you because like you I trusted the so called doctor even though i knew something wasnt right with my little boy. Dont beat yourself up about it though because it's not your fault. What Happened to your DD sounds terrifying and you have to question how both the nurses and doctors failed to pick up how sick she was. I'm glad she is well now. Lots of lover you both

oh stumblebeine and The fox, what horrible experiences to have been through.
Stumble was any action taken against the hospital for what happened?
I think you both did well in advocating for your children and then the hospitals screwed you over. Neither of you should blam yourselves because you were questioning things, and you had your babies getting help there.
To watch a child vomit blood Stumble, and a child be unresponsive The fox, I can't even imagine it . I am glad your babies got through this and have such strong Mums to be there for them.
