My 4 yr old Filipino grandson has had 5 weeks of ear infections, sinus infection and strep then recovered. Last Tuesday he came down with yet another illness but this one rapidly became severe. He was admitted to Children's hospital on day 3 with extremely high white count, 105° fever, cracked chapped lips, swollen adenoids that made him speak funny, painful sore feet (no swelling). No one mentioned KD, they eventually said he had an adenovirus and said go home, it'll pass. Saturday I was babysitting him and he was so crabby and irritated. I took his temperature and it had spiked to 105.7. I called my son and daughter in law and they rushed him to ER. He got the run around saying "virus dad, don't worry" and sent home. His pediatrician sent grandson to an infectious diseases Dr on this Monday, she mentioned KD, took blood and said she'd call in the morning. Yesterday she reported his ESR was 50+ and CRP was 2.2. She ordered an echo for tomorrow (day 10!!) and I've worried myself sick that she was not in a hurry. My question is "is day 10 considered late diagnosis??". Thank you for any answers!!
