I was just pleased that the final diagnosis was a disease I had heard of. *chortle*

The wiki page for Kawasaki disease isn't particularly clear on the breadth/limitations of onset symptoms. But it does make it sound as though they really pushed the envelope on the severity of the skin-peeling thing. And it mentions coronary artery aneurysms many times, but nothing about brain aneurysms at all. Oh, show.

I liked how his skin is shedding profusely over his entire body, except his face, which had a few patches of minute scaling. That was highly appreciated. And it healed with miraculous speed, to the degree that his wife flinging herself across his body at the end didn't seem to hurt at all. (I'm guessing that was the actress's choice. I can just hear the director were I any actor on the set: "Cut, cut, cut! This isn't an appropriate time to be making out with the patient!")

i discovered over the years that TV medicine works sort of different than the RL one. so the fact that the skin was shedding all over except for his face and that he recovered strangely fast was no surprise for me.
