Condition need to be monitor...

Terry sickness is venture into the 3rd week. 2nd course of med is finish and still found his phlegm is there and breathing is not that good when coughing continously. Previously paed mention that his lungs was infected and causing the problem. After medication still can say not fully recovered.

Yesterday, we brought him to Pantai hospital Kid Specialist. Dr. Tan said he is having Bronchitis and cause the phlegm and cough problem still carry on. There are viruses infect the respiratory tract and attack the bronchial tubes. Thats why earlier on the first week, his regular paed said he is having flu mucus overflow in his lungs. Though he is having this problem, he was not down for fever and he have appetite to eat as usual, the only thing is cough and breathing part.

This paed is more detail in checking and hearing his lungs condition. She wants another round of 15 minutes sucking gas to open up the inflammation of the bronchial tubes. Terry is less struggle this round when having the treatment (he even sleep). His condition still need to be monitor and tomorrow there is another appointment back to paed for gas suction for check up of his lungs condition. 4 types of oral medication is given with an Antibiotics this time. Gas mask is carry along for his next treatment.
I should have treat his coughing problem seriously since more than 3 weeks ago. He was starting with coughing at night only and I only give him some kid's cough syrup from pharmacy. I only brought him to paed after 3 days when the condition is not show any better at night and so on the condition carry on to Bronchitis now.

For myself, after few rounds "leong sui" also no improvement too and the coughing is getting worst. I think for Terry's condition become serious, more or less can be the bacteria passed from me. Yesterday night, we both also see doctor. I'm having some coughing syrup and antibiotics.

poor u guys. Hope that u both will be alright soon. don't feel bad for not bringing him to the clinic earlier ok? I will react the same way too. As long as he is not getting fever and shiver only at night, he is in good hands. Next time try to avoid Sweet Cough Mixture cos it content sugar and it will cause phlegm.

Try patting his back with yr palm slightly bend, It will break the phlegm and he will be able to spit it out or even vomit out.

maybe you can think of the medicine that use for strengthening the lung, i asked a bottle for jo last time, his cough dramatically went off after he took the medicine.

As for my experience, the Zrytec doesn't help any.

Get well soon.

Get well soon to you and Terry. We mommies cannot avoid virus and bacterias when we look after the kids. It's not surprising when we lack sleep during this time, that it's easy for us to get sick too. Take care ya.

oh..poor boy...ur post reminded me the last time darren went through the gas thing..glad that he is taking it better the 2nd time.

Go to chinese medical hall and get them to prescribe u some chinese herbal soup to boil for "bou" the lungs and cough. It is good. I fed darren plenty of that the last time he was sick. Somehow too much of western medicine will make the boy feel more lethargic. U can drink the same soup too..

I'll give u a call to tell u what i did the last time coz I don't know how to translate those chinese herbs in english..

Hope Terry and u get well soon!

It's a tough period for you but be strong. He will get well. Take care and get well soon.

Jacelyn Chew said...

ur medi seem very familiar to me.

sasha is right. if terry vomits out the phlegm, he'll soon recover very fast. yeah, bend terry's body forward, and pat at his back upwards, not downwards, to enable phlegm to be pushed out and not inside again.
