KD after care

Post by JessicaBella31 » Sun Nov 18, 2012 7:19 pm

Hello, my child was diagnosed the end of August 2012 with KD. She was in the hospital for 6 days before we actually were told that it was kawasaki disease. When we were told we were devastated, as like any other parents when they have been told. She was treated a day went home 48 hrs after she was givin the IV to treat KD. We had to make appointments to have ecocardograms done, one was a week after and the other was 4 weeks. The next day we had went to her family doctor so he could talk about after care and order blood work and do a check up. He had mentioned that he could hear a slight heart mermer that when we go for the eco to let the tech know. We went to our eco appointment and i told her about it, we went to our second eco and by this point I haven't heard anything from neither the specialist or our family doctor. My husband and I were very frustrated becaz we have tried several times to contact before Dr's. As we were walking out of our last eco I received a phone call from the doctor and he said that nothing was damaged from the KD. We are still very very cautious when we go out ( wiping carts at store and using hand sanatiser often. She now has a cold, no fever but runny nose and sneezing. I am asking if there's anything different? And I am also seeking more info for what to expect for the months even years to come?

Thanks alot.
