My 25 year old handicapped son passed away on 9-11-18.

My 25 year old handicapped son passed away on 9-11-18. He was a heart patient that was not expected to live through 1995. His tummy started bloating a bit and was difficult to pull air off through his gtube. All the sudden after being fine all day, he threw up and they said he quit breathing. Obviously CPR was unsuccessful. They tried to intubate him and could not. After he passed, i was holding him and rocking him, his tummy was absolutely enormous like i have never seen and a brownish coffee looking thick substance began coming out of his nose. What caused this? I do not have his cause of death yet because the doctor left before i seen him! Death certifcates will come Monday with the cause stated!

hi, my 11 yo son complains about dizziness , his bloods are all normal other than eosinophils (1.2 10*9/L). He had a blood test a year ago and his eosinophils were also elevated (2.5 10*9/L). he is also very anxious and has panick attacks, could these symptoms be linked to his eosinophils levels?

Took my 11 year old son to minute clinic this afternoon. I was told we would treat for ear infection, strep test can back negative. He was given liquid amoxicillin to take. I m concerned about the dosage. He weighs 96 pounds, dosage for amoxicillin is 25 ml twice a day. Is that too much?

My son who just turned 2 on 1/9/11 began running a fever last Thurs 1/20/11. On Monday he awoke with Sores on his chin. Tuesday 1/25/11 the doctor diagnosed him with hand mouth and foot disease. I was told he d have the fever for about a week. His fever hasn t been over 102 degrees, but it is Saturday 1/29 and he is still running a fever on & off. At times he s back to his old self and then his nose begins to run and the fever returns. When should I be worried? Should I take him to the ER? I haven t taken him, because I don t want him being priked and probed and then told its just a virus . I have a daughter, who is 9 month and she caught the virus, she also has the mouth sores , but hasn t had fever as frequent as her brother. I have disinfected the house, sprayed lysol, cleaned, kept them apart, constant hand washing, I have even arranged for someone to come to the house to care for them, while I m working until they get better. I am kind of worried, but am not sure if I should be. Please help.
