Where to begin...?

So, clearly I haven't posted much lately. It's been a bit hectic over this way.
My daughter's birthday party was wonderful - and I'll probably post a few pictures tomorrow.

My son has been sick since two days after the party....high fevers, lethargy and a variety of other symptoms that has had me back and forth to the Pediatricians and Children's a few times over the past week. He was almost admitted last night, but they want to give this "virus" a few more days before they officially give it a name. They're leaning towards Kawasaki, but because he has some of the symptoms, but not all - they're hesitant. We're taking him back tomorrow unless by some chance he appears much better in the morning.

The good news is that all of his blood labs came back negative for all the other syndromes they tested for, including Leukemia and other types of the "C" word.

I'm hoping that this is just some nasty virus they've never seen before, but whatever it is - we'll deal with it.

It's been a tough couple of days, that's for sure.

Scary! I hope by now things have sorted themselves out and he's on the mend.

WOW, I hope that he gets better soon. Please keep us updated as to how he is feeling. I'll keep all of you in my prayers! God bless!!

I can't imagine his sickness is that bad. I have my fingers crossed though.

I hope he doesn't have Kawasaki - wouldn't want a sickness named after a crappy motorbike.

They may have already done so, but make sure they test for kidney infection too. Little boys have a tendancy to have what they call reflux and infections like this set up shop for a while. It's hard to diagnose and they scare you with a bunch of other crap first. Hope all turns out well.

Sorry I haven't been around much. Another week or two and I'll be back to a normal schedule. :)

I think I spoke too soon. It just registered that you said Kawasaki Virus and I think that has syptoms involving the lungs. Probably not a kidney infection. Sorry, just trying to help.
