Cardiology questions

Hi. My 7yo was diagnosed with KD a week ago. He was at a smallish hospital. They did an echo and faxed results to a pediatric cardiologist at a children's hospital to look over. We were told that everything looked fine except two arteries they "couldn't get a report on." We were told to get another ...

Re: Anyone had peeling skin as first symptom?

Hi. Thought I should update. My son was in the small-but-much-bigger-than-my-town hospital for two nights. They had a pediatric ward but for diagnosis and treatment, they were on phone with a children's hospital in Portland. The first night they did an echo and an x-ray (? -is that a thing that's no...

Re: Anyone had peeling skin as first symptom?

Wow. So, they said his inflammation markers are high, so after initially "leaning away from Kawasaki" according to ex, they are now realizing he probably has it. Unfortunately, as y'all said, they are not a children's hospital, so they're on the phone with a doctor at a different big city hospital a...

Re: Anyone had peeling skin as first symptom?

Well, earlier today, my ex managed to speak to a cardiologist (not sure if it was a pediatric cardiologist) at UC Davis medical center, which is the "big city" hospital I've been referring to. They said they could check him out with a referral. (Also, I realized that they call their children's ward ...

Re: Anyone had peeling skin as first symptom?

Hi. Thank you for the responses. Unfortunately when I say small *isolated* town, I mean the closest children's hospital (where they air-ambulanced my daughter during her diabetes diagnosis and she needs to visit every three months) is more than an 8 hour drive away. My ex-in-laws, a retired oncologi...

Anyone had peeling skin as first symptom?

Hi. My just-turned-7-year old son has been sick for about a week. Last Monday and Tuesday, he had cold/cough symptoms including slight fever. On Wednesday morning he seemed improved but by evening, he had *really* bloodshot eyes without gunk and a fever that went up to 102.6. Our local clinic had no...
