Well,it is good to hear that you two are still care-giving together. I am sorry to hear that Dave's having difficulties in his care-giving situation... God bless you both and your families.
Here is a wonderfully informative site:
So, it is typically a childhood health issue. However, infections can hit anyone at anytime. Is Dave's wife on antibiotics at this time? It sounds as if one of the most important steps is to get health care as soon as possible - which has been done already.

Love and Hugs from Glenda
