My son (age 3 years and 8 months) was diagnosed with Purpura Schoenlein Henoch?

My son (age 3 years and 8 months) was diagnosed with Purpura Schoenlein Henoch. He started with a fever on 17th of March and did not have any further symptoms, apart from a few spots, until the 20th. Within hours his joints started to swell, he developped a serious rash and oedema on the legs, had trouble walking. Because of the severity of the joint involvement, we were admitted to hospital and discharged the next day. The swelling receded already a day later and my son has been absolutely pain-free and playing normally at home since the 23rd. No medication was required. He is having his urine checked daily, as well as his blood-pressure in weekly intervals, and gladly up to now there is no sign of bowel or renal involvement. He is still getting the occasional spot though (developped several small ones on the knees on Monday, which have since receded, and a moskito bite like one yesterday).

He has been told by our paedeatrician that he should “rest” for a longer period of time, though I did not quite understand whether this was to prevent further swelling, whether to prevent kidney involvement, or to allow him to recover more generally. I am aware that the symptoms can reoccur but am unsure if there are measures I can take to prevent this, or rather of there are activities that would make renal involvement and a relapse more likely.

Please can you tell me more about how I should manage him at home (limitation of physical activity, jumping and running, playing with friends, returning to Kindergarten etc.)

My son has a medical history of hydronephrosis in the kidney?

Hello, my son is 18 1/2 weeks old. We just got back from family vacation to South Carolina where he took his first airplane ride. About eight days ago I noticed that his poop was green and mucousy. After looking online I attributed it to the fact that I have reduced my pumping schedule fairly drastically and perhaps there had become an imbalance between the fore and hindmilk therefore allowing him to get more sugary fore milk and upsetting his stomach. After about three days of green poop his poop changed to yellow and Seedy, however it had and continues to have brownish-black flecks inside. After looking on Google I saw that there could be a sign of blood in the stool. At this moment I do not have Insurance so a trip to the doctor would mean that I would have to initiate cobra and that would cost me $1900. As you can imagine I’m trying to avoid that at all cost since I do not have the funds to pay that kind of bill. I’m hoping that I can get an answer as to whether you think from this description and by looking at the photo that I have attached below whether or not this appears to be blood in the stool and if you think it’s absolutely necessary for me to bring him to his pediatrician. If it appears to be somewhat normal and not a concern I can then wait for two weeks when my insurance will start back up and I will bring him to the pediatrician then. My son has a medical history of hydronephrosis in the kidney however I don’t believe this is connected. It’s probably also important to note that he only takes breastmilk aside from 2 ounces of formula that I gave him over the course of those past eight days. We did start feeding him oatmeal cereal the past two days however noticed the change in his poop prior to this as well. The picture of the diaper that you see below is from last evening after the oatmeal however we’ve seen the same types of poop diapers prior to us every feeding him oatmeal. Thank you so much for your help!

6 month old began bilateral rhythmic repetitive leg thrusting?

6 month old began bilateral rhythmic repetitive leg thrusting about two weeks ago. Leg thrusts incorporate back arching (imagine a body builder preparing to deadlift a barbell). This can go on for hours!! Distractable. Generally preceded by extreme hyperactivity. More common when tired. Otherwise developing normally. Movement is forceful but smooth – not jerky. No eye roll associated with the movement.
She can run like the wind in her walker but sometime you find her “stuck” in space and time leg thrusting.
I have a few short videos but this site will not allow the upload due to size.
Knee is pulled up to a horizontal position, which if followed by a forceful thrust downward and repeated almost immediately for hours unless distracted. (Both legs move synchronized in this movement)

My 1 month old daughter has a congenital heart disease and needs heart surgery, can it wait one year?

My 1 month old daughter has a congenital heart disease named – transposition of great arteries with vsd.
I bring her to a govt. Hosp. Doctors put her on oxygen for two weeks. Now from last two weeks they had removed her oxygen and now she is breathing well. Now we bring her back home she looks normal but some time her lips, ears, hands and feet toes get blue.
She is breathing well, sleeping well. Her mother feeding her regularly. She seems perfect she only cries when she is hungry or when her body exposed to air. While crying she got too much blue.
Doctors said it’s not possible to do her heart surgery bcoz she is too young. They tried too do angioplasty but didn’t succeed bcoz her veins are too thin. Doctors said let her grow a bit like up to 1 year. After it will be safe to do her surgery. Other wise bring her to any other country (which i cannot afford).
I just want to ask that Is it ok to keep her like this for one year without any treatment?
Please give me the suggestion that what should i do now
(please excuse me for my poor English)

I have an 8 year old son with calcification and health issues, please advise?

I have an 8 year old son. He was a 6 week prem baby. For the last 12 months he has had an on going cough and chest infections. He also gets high temp’s, around 38-40c. He had a ct scan the other week without
IV solution. The doctors can’t seem to understand or come up with a reason for the on going illness. As you can imagine, it is becoming frustrating for him and for us. We have taken him to peads and specialists at the royal children’s hospital. They have been talking about doing a broncoscapy. I don’t really want this to happen. I don’t like having children going under. The ct test came back as the following.
Lungs are symmetrically and normal inflated.
No collapse or consolidation. No air space infiltrate. No bronchiectasis and the bronchi are not large than the accompanying vessels.
No evidence of interstitial lung disease.
No discrete pulmonary nodules or lung masses.
No endotracheal or endobronchial lesions.
No pleural or pericardial effusions.

There are however two calcifications seen in the right hilar region.
possibly reflecting calciification in some lymph nodes. No obvious lymphadenopathy however.
Thymic tissue noted in the superior mediastinum as expected for a child of this age.
Normal appearance of the osseous thorax.
Conclusion
Subtle calcification in the right hilar may relate to some calcification in the lymph nodes.
No obvious lymphadenopathy identified however.
Lung parenchyma is unremarkable. No bronchiectasis.

The doctors don’t seem to understand what they mean by the calcification, they cant work out the report.
No one can give us a proper answer. My poor boy is sick and tired of this going on. It’s like he’s sick for weeks then it goes dorment and then comes back again. He just cant shake it.
He has had Azithromycin 200mg daily 5 days and amoxil 500mg tds 6 days.
These seem to help for a short period.
He had bloods done as well.
The main thing was low iron, if required I can supply the report for this.
Can someone please help.
Regards
Desperate dad

Please help with this for my son’s sake.

My 2 year old daughter cannot walk, doctors baffled?

My daughter turned 2 recently and she is finding it extremely difficult walking by her self, however she is able to stand with support and is able to walk using objects like tables or chairs. I have taken her to a few doctors who seem baffled, she has very poor lower limb movement and strength. The size of her lower limb are disproportionate to her upper body, she has no muscle mass in her legs and they may have begun to atrophy? she also has hypermobility in her knees which is also affecting her lower limbs, and walking.
Tests completed:
1. Nerve conduction Studies: very poor results in legs.
2. MRI Spine (under G.A) did not find anything.
3. Blood tests all good!
