    Message from the Littrell Family

    On Saturday December 20, 2008, Baylee T W Littrell was released from Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in Atlanta. Before
    being admitted Baylee had been treated for or thought to have had strep
    throat, hand, foot, mouth disease and erythema multiforme. After
    receiving a biopsy, blood tests, an EKG and 2 echocardiograms, Baylee
    was finally diagnosed with A-Typical Kawasaki Disease. We would like to
    stress A-Typical because Baylee did not have text book symptoms of any
    of the viruses they thought he had. Kawasaki Disease
    causes inflammation in the coronary arteries as well as the walls of
    the small and medium sized arteries throughout the body. Unfortunately,
    Baylee’s coronary arteries were affected. He received an IVIG, which is
    a treatment to bring down the inflammation in his coronary arteries.
    Baylee will be closely monitored for the next 6-8 weeks by a Pediatric
    Cardiologist to see if the treatment was effective. We
    want to thank every one who prayed for us as well as all of the emails
    and phone calls. Your love and support means so much to our family. The
    Hospital Staff were absolutely amazing. They made an extremely
    difficult time in our lives as comfortable as possible. We are humbled by the love and compassion that people have for our son all over the world, thank you!

    Brian and Leighanne Littrell


    Baylee leaving the hospital. He deserved the coustume!
