I had Kawasaki when I was 13 years old

I had Kawasaki disease back in 2012 (when I was 13). At first we thought it was a severe flu, we went to my normal doctor who also said it was just a flu or an infection and gave me antibiotics, but after about 7 days, things just got worse and my highest fever was around 104. We went to the hospital and the doctor thought it was just an infection, but by the grace of God there was a nurse present who was taking a college course on rare diseases and recognized it as Kawasaki... We transferred to a different hospital and rare disease specialists said I was the oldest person to get this disease that they had ever heard of.. I posted my story to see if anyone else has heard of a case as extremely rare as mine. Or anyone one close to my age getting this disease....
