Toddler has had fevers for over 3 weeks. No one knows why.
I’m just checking back with you- how is your son doing with his fevers now?
What other testing do your doctors recommend?
I hope all is well.

My son has been fever free since the end of August however, he is being treated for fluid around his heart. Apparently the virus he had caused inflammation in his body and it reacted by creating this fluid. We've been treating him with daily doses of Motrin. The fluid is slowly going away. We have another cardiologist appointment on Thursday where they'll do another echocardiogram. Hopefully it'll be much improved. We can't wait for our son to be 100% healthy. Thank you for asking about him.
