The following day it was still high at 39.6 n he looked very drowsy. i felt somethg was very wrong n assessed him n found a lump at d side of his neck. immediately we rushed him to thomsondical n called for dr Ang who quickly admitted him for blood test n all. it hurts t c him jn pn ain n with s many needles n tube..Brufen was.given to him again 3x n he started having amgry r rashes all ove r his face n body. they stop all med n observed him. the next day he started having red eyes n doc suddenly suspected its kawasaki.if left untreated it will lead to heart attack or even sudden death. i broke down n cried n he was sent for gamma treatment intravenously
by now he was really weak n it hurts to c my mischievious n active boy so limp.Gamma treatmt is to prevent damage to his coronary vessels .
He remained in icu till he got better ytd bu.t he gotta be on aspirin med which is unsuitable for children but used exceptionally in kawasaki trestment. he needs to get a heart scan few weeks later to chevk if any damges had been done to his heart. i really pray hard he will ne fine.
Parents, pls do not take it too lightly if your child has a persistent fever. you can google about this disease n learn more d symptoms.we r glad we followed our instincts n not some doc advice. treatment is really exp n make sure you have insurance covered for your children. my poor boy is only bout 16 mths old
