Good Day! I am not really good at this but I will try my best for my baby boy.
Niccolo Briones, also known as Nicco is only 1 year and 4 months old. He's very active, playful and sweet boy. He loves to eat vegetables. He occassionaly has cough and colds that's why he's always been suspected having asthma. Then one day after him having a cough for a week, he started having high fever. It usually ranges from 38° to 40°. He vomits a lot, has slight rashes poor appetite and red eyes. We went to his Pediatrician for a checkup and asked us for some lab tests including Dengue test, Typhoid Test, Urinalysis and CBC Platelet. The result came in and was negative for having Dengue and Typhoid. But he was postive for having U.T.I plus the remarks of his CBC Platelet test were really high. He was then suspected for having Hand, foot and mouth Disease, Scarlet fever and Kawasaki Disease. I prayed that it was nothing really serious but the signs of having Kawasaki was being clear onto him. His rashes went all over his body. He has red eyes. He has strawberry tounge according to his Pedia and when his fever subsides, the skin on his fingers started to peel off. We was then requested to do a test called ESR and CRP (a test that indicates inflammation in the body). Results came in and the remarks were all high. We were then referred to a Cardio-Pedia for a heart consultation plus this test called 2D echo. Luckily, the result of his 2D Echo was normal. My son's heart is normal. However, according to his ESR and CRP test, he's still considered having a Kawasaki Disease.
What is Kawasaki Disease and how dangerous could it be to the young ones? Kawasaki Disease primarily affects children. The inflammation tends to affect the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart muscle. There are two ways to treat Kawasaki: one is infusion of Gamma globulin to lower the risk of having coronary artery problems and another one is taking Aspirin (high doses to help treat inflammation).
Currently, we are taking Aspirin because we can't afford to buy Gamma globulin. Gamma globulin or IVIG usually costs 8,000php to 15,000php or $150 to $280 per vial. My son needs 22 grams of IVIG and roughly needs 70,000php to 80,000php to have this treatment for his Kawasaki.

I am also asking for your prayers for my son. Thank you so much and God bless!
