    hello, so sorry about that, I know how you feel, it's meningitis and it's an inflammation of the meninges caused by an infection to the brain, if not quickly diagnosed and properly treated, there can be complications with permanent brain damage that presents with all you described above, however you should see a paediatrician neurologist, there can be some things that would help, which would include speech therapy, physiotherapy, nutritionist advise and some medications....
