I had colds and a slight fever two Fridays ago (November 16), and by Sunday (November 18), the little man was sniffling as well. He woke up with a cough and a 38 degree fever the following morning (November 19) so I took him to his pedia for a check-up. His fever was gone by Tuesday (November 20), but the little man still had cough and colds, causing him to eat very little.
Things took a turn for the worst on Wednesday afternoon (November 21) - the fever came back (rising as high as 38.5 degrees), his cough was nasty and his colds prevented him from breathing through his nose, plus he wasn't eating anything save for a few spoonfuls of soup and small sips of water. I had no choice but to have him admitted to the hospital, and that same evening we were back to where we were three weeks ago - the San Pablo City Medical Center.

As of this writing, we're out of the hospital and back at home. The little man hasn't gone back to school; I want his body to rest for another week before we go back to the daily grind. He's still coughing a bit, but the fever is gone and his appetite is back. Once he finishes this round of Clarithromycin, we're going back to his pedia for a follow-up check-up where he will be given a new set of meds.
We're starting a six-month treatment for his lungs, something similar to the treatment given to kids with Primary Complex. He's also on Seretide now, which he has to take (inhale) for the next three months. I've been on Seretide before, and although I hated it (and its price), it's a big help to those with asthma. Good thing I'm back to good ol' Ventolin. (Meaning my asthma isn't at its worst.)
