Has anyone experienced this? My daughter was hospitalized with it at 5 months. I did some reasearch on the web and I can't seem to find what the differenc is between Kawasaki disease, syndrome & virus? Any info will be greatly appreciated :)

  • Honestly, I had no idea what this was, so i looked up too.
    You may have found the same site.. but this seemed pretty informative:

  • Thank u so much ladies. It's been a month now since Amora's been home but she's just not the same although all her test results are coming back with great results. I just cant seem to stop worrying that its not over or will come back. anyway, thanks again. Have a great night :)
