Still Not Sure What's Wrong

Just a quick update as to our little girl's medical situation. Yesterday morning we were admitted to a hospital that deals more specifically with more complicated pediatric issues. At first, we were absolutely confused and clueless as to what was going on, where we were supposed to be, who we were supposed to see, etc. It was kind of chaotic and overwhelming.
When we first got to the pediatric ward, I bumped into one of my husband's old classmates who switched into medicine and used to go to the same church as us. I think he's in 4th year medicine (or just finished), so it was nice to see a familiar face and chat for a brief moment.

Yesterday What Happened:

Complete medical history taken
Saw a couple resident doctors
Had an echocardiogram done
Knew our night R.N. from when we went to church up here (so, that was nice)

Results: Echo was normal so far (Praise God!)
Current on-going diagnosis (not confirmed yet) is Atypical Kawasaki Disease

This Morning:
Blood Work Done
Met Senior Resident Pediatrician: Said they are going to try to work out a plan of action today.
Neutrophil count is only 3% from this morning's work (this is not good)
Not sure about platelets and stuff yet
Her rash looks like it might be coming back
She has sores on her tongue and redder lips and gums
She does not look quite as good as yesterday. She's had several bowel movements (much more than usual, which is strange, too.)

Sorry for the disjointed post. I'm beyond exhausted. Not sure how much more of this all I can handle. This morning I'm feeling like I'm at a breaking point. Trying hard to not rely on my own strength (I have none at this point) but on the Lord's.
