Subject: BS: Good thoughts please for my grandson
From: jacqui.c
Date: 06 Jan 09 - 10:43 AM

My adored little boy, Lewis, was taken to hospital last Friday, having had stomach upsets for a couple of days and coming out in red blotches all over. Blood tests ruled out meningitis, measles and leukemia and so further tests were done, while pumping in antibiotics to see if that would help. Today the tests came back negative so we still don't know what is wrong. He hadn't been able to eat or drink for a few days but can manage a little food and drink now and seems to be a little better, although his temperature keeps spiking up to 40C.

He's only eight and, while his mum says that he is being brave, they are having problems getting canulas into his hands and have to change the hand today as the current canula has caused swelling.

I'm getting regular emails and phone calls from his parents, who are taking it in turns to stay overnight in the hospital with him. that helps to close the 3000 miles difference but I really would just like to be there to give him a hug.

I have seen on other occasions what the power of the Mudcat can do so would ask if you could just put some good thoughts his way.

I've said a prayer and he's in my thoughts. I feel for you, jacqui.

I am glad to hear that the first tests, for the frightening diseases of meningitis, measles and leukemia, came up negative.

You can't be there, but are you taking advantage of technology? Can you phone him, make a video of yourself telling him you love him and are sorry he's sick? Can you wire him a teddy bear?

It's not because he doesn't want to go to school, is it? I used to get a stomach ache at test times.

No, probably not.

Okay, all I can say is that he'd better get well! Don't make his grandma come over there!

The beautiful thing is that youngsters can rebound so quickly. Here's hoping that this will be the case with him.

Jacqui, this sounds exactly like what my 27 year old son had. High temperature (104 F), body aches, upset stomach, and a blotchy rash. They did every kind of test and couldn't figure out what it was but it seemed to run its course after about 5 days and he's back at work today. Good thoughts headed for your grandson.

Best wishes for a quick recovery whether or not the medical profession figures out exactly what it is. Glad it's NOT all those really nasty things, but fevers, rashes and not being able to eat or keep hydrated is neither fun nor good.

Lots of good healing thoughts, prayers, etc. from this neck of the woods -- to Lewis, his parents and to you, dear Jacqui.

A friend at my office just stopped me to see if I was OK. The worry is showing.

Tell Mommy to make sure those bitchy nurses are treating my little friend right. They do not want to deal with the Wrath of the Evil Sisterhood.

Now...how many jumping, singing, farting, dancing wind up toys can I accumulate in a week and fit into one large USPS box?
Or maybe I should wait and see what the Wonder Boy would like.

Sharon emailed me earlier. They saw the dermatologist today who thinks that he might have Stevens Johnson Syndrome, which may have caused septicochal virus. She also wants him specially tested for measles.

So, right now, they are not really any further forward and are waiting for yet another doctor's visit.

I can see why they call them patients!

Many thanks for all the kind messages. Micca will be printing this thread to send to Sharon and Steve when he sends my care package for Lewis. Your thoughts mean a lot to me and I know will mean a lot to them as well.

Been surfing. Interesting - measles have been known to trigger SJS although a reaction to drugs is more common.:

A. Drugs aetiology
i) Antibiotics – Sulphonamides, Amoxycillin, Ampicillin,
Ethambutol, Isoniazid
ii) Anticonvulsant – Phenobarbitone, carbamazepine, phenytoin
iii) NSAID – Phenylbutazone, Salicylates.
B. Herpes infection
C. Mycoplasma Pneumonia
D. Many viruses, enteroviruses, adenoviruses, measles, mumps
E. Bacteria, Streptococcus, typhoid fever

Note to all Motrin and Advil (ibuprofen) have multiple lawsuits re: SJS.

Thanks for coming back to us Jacqui.... I will keep an eye on this thread.

His symptoms remind me of many an allergic reaction I've had to medications (cillins and sulpha drugs), somes food and insect toxin (flea bites).

On occasion could be life threatening but mostly it was only bloody annoying.

Praying it is nothing like so serious as SJS and good thoughts still flowing Lewis' way.

I dreamt about Lewis last night. He was going to be arrested for taking drugs. The officer was an idiot and I kept telling him thatwhen people are in the hospital they have to take drugs to get better. He finally left. Lewis was riding a bicycle and looked fine. Keeping that picture in my mind.

I just got this email from Sharon, having asked how Lewis is today.

Much brighter-the rash has virtually gone,his eyes are still not right but not as bad as they have been. He's had mouth and eye swabs taken today, more bloods and the cannula taken out!!! We should get test results back this afternoon then we can hopefully go home. They are fairly confident it is the septicochal virus. He is not taking paracetomol or ibrufen any more just to make sure they were not masking his temperature. Has to have another 4 days of anti biotics orally. He's definitely turned the corner!!!

Now, maybe, I can start breathing again!

Glad to hear the good news!

What is a 'septicochal virus'? I can't find anything on it. There's streptococcal bacteria, but otherwise I don't have a clue. (Guessing it's strep, because antibiotics don't work on viruses.)

Anyway, I'm just happy he's feeling better.

It was most likely a skin infection caused by the Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. This is not uncommon and most often occurs in pre-pubertal children.

Just got a call from Sharon. Lewis was sprung from the hospital late this afternoon. I spoke to him for a moment - he still sounds a bit poorly but is obviously much better.

He sent his dad out for KFC for his dinner and, according to Sharon, ate quite a lot - he never has been a big eater normally.

They have 24 hour access to the hospital and if they are at all concerned can take him back for a check up without a GP referral, which is a comfort. He's on oral antibiotics for 5 days and, so long as he is fit enough, can go back to school once he finishes the antibiotics.

They got back from the hospital to find that a neighbour had left a dish of lasagne for their dinner so they are being taken care of, which is a comfort to me.

Lewis still has a way to go before he's totally fit again but it looks like there will be no problems coming out of this. It seems that they were putting lots of antibiotics into him to ward off the possibility of Stevens Johnson Syndrome.

Anyway, he's home, neither Sharon or Steve need to be at work until Monday and they are all going to get a well deserved rest for a few days.

I'm glad I missed this thread so that by the time I got to it there was a happy outcome. It must be terrible to have a grandchild so far away when you're so worried about how he is. And worried for his parents too.

Anyway here's a quote that came to mind when things came out right:

He prayeth best who loveth best
All things both great and small,
The strepticoccus is the test -
I love him best of all


Though when I looked it up it turns out that the man who wrote this, Wallace Wilson (it's a parody of a verse in the Rime of the Ancient Marine)seems to have had "I love him least of all", which may be truer, but I rather prefer the way I've always known it, with "best".

Sharon may have got the spelling wrong - I'll try and get more info, but it seems that this might have resulted from a bug that Lewis's half brother had when he visited after Christmas. Lewis sticks to Mark like glue when he's around and it's thought that his coughing may have exposed the little one to something that just took hold in his blood. Just one of those freak occurrences I guess.

"I have found no reference to septicocheal virus"

My hunch is that septicocheal virus is a mishearing of Staphylococcus aureus, which as a skin infection would present with the very symptoms described.
