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.
