In brief: Gastroenteritis

Most likely a viral gastroenteritis you need to take him to the hospital

It could be a very serious infection and he is vulnerable with a heart murmur. Is he in the hospital now? Ask the physicians who are caring for him to explain what they believe is going on.

In brief: Talk to his docs

Much as I would love to start guessing (guessing diagnoses based upon a very few symptoms is a game doctors play), a forum like this is not the place to get answers to this question.
Instead, ask his doctors. They should share with you what they are thinking. If they do not explain clearly, politely let them know that you do not understand and ask again.

In brief: Frver, rash ht murmu

The combination of signs & symptoms your son has can be caused by several coditions, since he is aleady in the hospital, I'm sure the doctors are already doing all tests that can help reach a diagnosis.
I hope your son feels better soon. Talk to doctor in hospital may be he or she can give you an idea. Good luck.
