Back in September, Paul Gott and Vikki Mitchell experienced every parent’s worst nightmare. Something was very wrong with their baby girl and they didn’t know what. Vikki went in to check on 10-month-old Kia and noticed a rash on her face, neck, and chest. She alerted Paul and the distressed parents called emergency services.
By the time paramedics arrived, Kia’s veins had collapsed, making it impossible to give her an IV. They were left with no choice but to drill into the baby’s shin bone to administer emergency medicine to help save her life. Paul and Vikki were terrified and had no idea what was wrong. When they arrived at the hospital, things went from bad to worse.
Kia was diagnosed with meningitis and her distraught parents were told she likely wouldn’t survive. Specialists told them it was the worst case of meningitis C septicemia they had dealt with in the U.K. in more than 25 years.
Doctors and specialists explained that the only way Kia would have a chance to live was if all of her limbs were amputated. They also told them that Kia would also likely be blind and deaf. Paul and Vikki told them to do whatever they had to in order to save their baby girl.
