Caleb became sick after we returned from a trip to visit family. He had a high fever for a couple of days, then began developing a swollen lymph node.
A friend of the family recommended we bring him to the ER since his fever would come down, and by the time we left for the hospital, he was completely lethargic.
At first the doctors did not know what was wrong with him and they ran a bunch of tests after admitting him.
One doctor became suspicious of Kawasaki and invited a group of interns to watch as they have Caleb an electrocardiograph since he felt that this disorder is rare enough that the interns may not get another chance to see what this disease looks like he doctor confirmed his diagnosis when he saw that Caleb’s blood vessels were inflamed, and they immediately began an IV for Immunoglobulin.
Caleb was in the hospital for around one week. He presented only with the fever and swollen lymph node. At the time, I was receiving radiation treatments for stage III breast cance. I would stay overnight at the hospital with Caleb, then go to the basement for treatment in the morning.
He was not misdiagnosed, amazing doctor!
No evidence of disease.
