My 3 month old son was admitted to childrens hospital on 12-29-10 and they still don't know what's wrong with him. They think it is Pompe disease but he only has two symptomes that fit that diagnoses and I don't believe that it's correct. He has an enlarged and thick heart, he had fluid around his heart that they had to drain, he was having difficulty breathing with the fluid in his heart but he is breathing on his own now with no problems. They also found that his heart was a little yellowish when they did a pericardial window to extract the fluid from his heart and patch up the hole they put in his heart when they tried to use a needle to drain the fluid. He was 6lb 7oz when he was born and he is now 9lb 13 oz so he is growing fine and he has no muscle weakness what so ever. He is holding his head up fine and developing at the rate he should. Please give me some ideas to throw at the doctors so we can find what's wrong with him as soon as possible.
