My 3 year old grandson is in the hospital with Kawasaki disease. I had never heard of it until yesterday. They think they caught it early enough. He had been sick 5 or 6 days. At around 10 to 12 days it gets much worse. Please say a prayer for him if you are a prayer.

UPDATE: Treatment has started with Gamma Globulin. He has a small aneurism in a coronary artery that will require continuing monitoring, but should heal with the treatment he is receiving.

UPDATE: No fever this morning. The IV infusion finished up about 2 AM this morning. He is still miserable and has a rash on his sides, back, and where his underwear is. His lips peeled entirely which is why they are so red. He did laugh at something on TV so may be feeling a little better. Still not eating but they are putting nourishment through the IV.

I love you guys
Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers.

Wife did a Skype call a few minutes ago. He is definitely doing better. His eyes have cleared up and he is hungry for his chicken nuggets. Mom went home to get some. The hospital nuggets are not the correct shape. God answers prayers.

UPDATE: Looks like he may get to go home today. Just waiting on the results of the ECG. Laughing and watching TV like normal. Miraculous recovery!

LAST UPDATE: They are sending hom him home. The ECG showed no expansion of the aneurism so they think all is good. He will be home gaining strength for another day tomorrow and probably back to daycare Friday.

Just want to say what an incredible site we have here. Deep discussion of political issues, trivial jokes and personal issues, requests for prayer.... all in respectful manner. Thanks Saul and Thomas for your work here. There's a reason I'm a monthly donor.

@Lemonhead

Tim, he is a handsome boy. Being hungry is a great sign! Get the boy some nuggets...😋

@TimToolMan

@TimToolMan

Hallelujah! Yes, He does!

@TimToolMan

He will be there again, soon. 😊 🙏💗❤💗

@TimToolMan

He has such beautiful eyes...

He's a handsome young man for sure.

@TimToolMan

That is fantastic news. Continued prayers for him and wishing him a speedy recovery. 🙏

@TimToolMan

Great news, he will do much better at home. 💕 I bet he enjoyed those nuggets mommy brought him. 😊

@TimToolMan

God bless and keep this sweet baby.

Rest easy, grownups. God's holding him close. All is well.

And prayers continue. ❤️

@Cdubois
You got that right, there are some tired out parents and grandparents. My wife was grocery shopping when she heard that he was going home - she was suddenly so tired she just bought what she had and came home.

@TimToolMan Prayers are so
powerful! Much love to your
sweet grandson and family!
I believe in miracles every single
day!! 🙏🏻 💕

@TimToolMan Thank God..prayers answered!! still laughing at chicken nuggets not the right shape 😂 Hes adorable ❤️

@TimToolMan Beautiful little boy. I don't see any conjunctivitis, and his chest looks clear (no rash that I can see in this picture.) Awesome news. Yes, prayers do work.

@TimToolMan

Praise God... He is looking great.

As for the chicken nuggets not being the correct shape...

I hate when that happens.

Still praying... Keep us all informed.

@TimToolMan
What a beautiful beautiful child. Prayers for his continued and rapid recovery!😍

@TimToolMan

"Not the correct shape." 😂
I TOTALLY get that, and it's such a good sign that little man is on the mend. Prayers continue. ❤️
