blood poisoning is very serious alone, it can be fatal too if left untreated, a temp of 104 is dangerously high and needs to be dropped, thats why he has developed seizures, pneumonia is treatable if its bacterial but if its a virus then we have to fight it alone, as for croup its a virus and has to be fought alone too, it may take a while for your son to get better, i had blood poisoning when i was 5 yr old and its awful to see a child lying there knowing theres nothing we can do other hope they'll have a speedy recovery, my sister had croup and was hospitalized because she had a heart condition she was fine.

they arent diseases, they are viruses that sound nastier than what they are, and they can be cured

try not to worry these viruses sound nasty but kids recover a lot better than adults, hes in hospital and is the safest place he can possibly be, i really hope he has a speedy recovery keep in touch :)
