i WOULD LIKE FOR EVERYONE TO READ THIS BECAUSE IT IS CRUCIAL! My 5 month old baby boy has just been diagnosed with dissemenated histoplasmosis with heptospleenomegaly ( enlarged spleen and liver.). This disease is carried through soil from bats and bid droppings! My baby almost lost his life! After 19 days in at Christ hospital on the oncologgy floor he may still lose the battle! It started with High fevers when he was only 3 months old. I took him to the doctor he precribed an antibiotic nothing helped his fevers got worse. This went on for over a month. When my little guy was 4 months I finally took him for a second opinion and the doctor found that he had a very large spleen and liver and referred us to Chicago's Christ Hospital. please listen and know that this disease can strike any one who is under the age of 2 . Please help me to get the word accross. This disease is prominate from Mississippi to ohio river valley! Even with treatment the patient can have kidney, liver and vision failor! Please pray for my baby Wyatte!

Thank you for praying for baby Wyatte. God he needs all the prayers now. he only has a 20% chance and if he makes it he will be the only infact to do so. So many tests and meds. God he has went through so much. I do not want to see any other baby go through what he has.
