My Bronchiolitis boy

The condition is not turn any better actually after yesterday check-up. This was our 4th week doctor visit and another new set of oral medication is carry on now. For the last week medication, his coughing is recover and now still left the phlegm and lungs problem. We not back to Pantai hospital this round, we continue the regular check-up at regular paed. We not sure changing doctor in that way is good for Terry or not. But, our intention is want to see what other doc gave in prescription and advises. For both side, the paed are giving almost the same medicine. Pantai one giving kind of strong medicine to him.

New set of med

Last week, at Pantai paed have done twice nebuliser with him and yesterday check-up shows that his lungs still have the wheezing sounds there and the condition is not show any recovery. I also gave him some chinese med, who told it is very good to clear the phlegm, but it not show any better too in get rid of the phlegm. Over the weekend, his nose got mucus and drys up around inside and outside his nose area. My early thought was, it is good to have mucus coming out from nose and it can be lighten the phlegm, it was wrong actually. Paed told that, it is not related at all. His mucus is because of his nose is sensitive now. Duh, develop another kind of sickness now!

Paed help him to suck out the mucus from his nostril. First attempt to the machine of cause struggle again. But, after it done, he is much better. His left nose having blood coming out when the suction going on, cause I hurt his nose when clearing his drys up inside. His bronchialitis condition is not so fast can get recover and now he is in KIV to use the inhaler (nebuliser) at home.

My heart really sank everytime bring him to check up and hearing all his lungs condition. It is a month time now Terry was on western med everyday. I started to get phobia feeding him med, not sure is Terry is getting sick eating it everyday. So far, he is not show any strong rejection towards the medicine and no big fuss happen too. For every mouth of med, I will accompany with a small piece of bread. In fact he is quite happy like that, cause he know he can eat bread when having med. When I mention to him is med time, he will point to the bread.

Yesterday, after back home from clinic. I was so sad and almost wanted to cry when checking those med. I was thinking, boy, how long he still need this. Why is this want to happen to him? He still a very small boy and taking medicine like more than rice now. While I was stroking his head, I told my darling, boy, you faster get recover ok? I really really hope that through oral medication can slowly recover without need to use any inhaler or puffer. Currently, one of his med is for asthmatic sickness. I also started to search on net for health information related to Bronchiolitis for toddler.

I pray hard to God for his speedy recovery. I don't want him to suffer anymore and we don't want to go clinic every week. I want back my healthy and happy Terry..

oh.....i know how u feel. Sometimes how we wish we are the one who fall sick and not them, rite? It is so heartache to see them suffering like that...

Luckily Terry is cooperative in taking medication and not difficult when giving the nebuliser. Or else, it will make the situation worst.

Really hope he'll get well soon.

Oh god, poor Terry. Last time Chloe cough for so long till take a costly sachet med to help the wheezing lungs. But those med are so bitter until she cries every time took it. After finish the med she still got some coughing, but we never wanna let her took it anymore. Just let her natural antibody to fight it, cough out to clean her lungs. She recovered herself later.

you know, Jesus said in mark 11:24, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them and you will have them!

that is itself a great promise that when we pray, and stand in faith, you'll see it happen! i believe God will heal your boy!!
keep the faith, God never fails!

Poor thing. Does he sleep in an air-cond room? Sometimes dry air can aggravate the condition. My girl has sensitive lungs too so when she's having cough, I won't hv the air-cond on the whole nite n I'll cover her neck n chest with a hanky. Warm water will help soothe an itchy throat. Hope this helps. Wishing Terry a speedy recovery.

How is Terry now? Hope he will have a speedy recovery.

Btw, you may try the "hou zou san" for him...it works pretty well to clear the phlegm.
