Doctors Dismiss Boy’s Rash as a Virus—When He Says “I’m Going to Die,” Mom Knows They’re Wrong

Suddenly, Oliver began to panic. He screamed that he couldn’t see and was going blind, then became stiff and collapsed into Natasha’s arms. The nurse rushed him to the ICU where doctors finally concluded that he wasn’t suffering from measles, but Kawasaki disease. He had all five of the symptoms—inflamed blood vessels that causes pain throughout the body, in joints and muscles, and affects the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart.

According to the Mayo Clinic, the disease also affects lymph nodes, skin, nose, throat and the mucous membranes inside the mouth. Symptoms of the disease present themselves in phases—similar to the ones Natasha observed in Oliver.

Phase one often includes: high fever; rash; red eyes; red, dry, cracked lips; red, swollen tongue; swollen lymph nodes; and swollen, red skin on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet.

The second phase is when you might notice peeling skin on the hands and feet, joint pain, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

Kawasaki disease is considered rare, but treatable. It’s most commonly found in young children and infants, who—when treated—recover in just a couple of days without any serious problems.

Oliver received blood transfusions to treat the disease, and woke up the next morning feeling much better. The rash was gone, and his fever was on the decline.

He spent one more night at the hospital before doctors decided to release him, but with mild anemia and the multiple scares she’d experienced because of this disease already, Natasha insisted they stay.

And it’s a good thing she did.

As they were walking around the hospital wing that evening, Natasha and Oliver were approached by a nurse who said the little boy had in fact tested positive for measles—despite having been up-to-date on his vaccinations.

They were quarantined again while Oliver received treatments for measles.

“Ollie is the ONLY know [sic] case of contracting measles while having all his up to date immunizations, and Kawasaki disease at the same time.I have one strong, brave little man! I couldn’t be more proud of him!”

After being released for the second time, Natasha once again refused. She fought to keep her son admitted until all of his tests came back normal. Now she wants other parents to do the same.

“Trust your gut moms and dads. Fight for your kids if something doesn’t seem right! We know our kid’s [sic], so don’t take no for an answer.”

She also says that vaccinations are what ultimately saved her son’s life:

“If Oliver didn’t have his vaccinations, he would be dead right now. The vaccines lessened the severity of the measles while his body ALSO fought the Kawasaki disease.”
