We just received WONDERFUL news that Witt does NOT have spinal meningitis!
The echo confirmed that his heart is normal, praise God! There is fluid in the sac around the heart but that is simply from the infection that is in his body. Still waiting for the spinal test results.
Witt is being tested for spinal meningitis right now, hopefully to rule it out. Then an echo will be performed. He definitely has an infection (based on his white blood cell count) but they are still trying to decide for certain if it is viral or bacterial, etc.
The pediatric cardiologist evaluated Witt and wasn't quite as alarmed about the heart. He said the heart looks normal now (no sounds indicate damage or problems). However, it is hard to tell because there have been conflicting reports. The cardiologist thinks the x-ray can be misleading and it is hard to tell if the heart really is enlarged. They are going to do an echocardiogram which should give more information.
