he has PNEUMONIA...!

Hey am back.. I attended a three-day seminar in Malate, Manila last week and had to take a leave from work yesterday to have Lance check up..

We are so anxious with Lance health because his coughs and colds won't heal, this lasted for almost a month now. He gradually lost his appetite.. he won't eat rice even Cerelac. He doesn't even like that much milk, he consumes milk around 20 oz or less a day. He will also take a few bites of crackers.. he totally lost his appetite last week which caused dropping his weight from 10.6kg to 9.09kg in a period of 1 week! My heart breaks when I see my baby like this.. weekly he is taking different kinds of antibiotics and anti-asthma but still his illness recurs.. then last sunday he got high fever.. That's why my hubby and I decided to look Lance health seriously and try changing his pedia..

Yesterday, we (me, hubby, my baby and MIL) went to Dr. Rebecca Arceo, family pedia of my hubby. She found small lymph nodes under my baby's ears and she instructed as to have Lance undergo xray exam. While taking the xray, Lance was so frightened with the machine he was screaming out loud.. my poor baby! Since the results will be released until 4pm, my MIL volunteered to wait for it and we go ahead home instead so that Lance could rest. When my MIL told me that the result was Pneumonia.. I wasn't able to react for a couple of minutes. My mind was blank. Then I thought what could be the cause.. I browsed the net and found this on the DOH site "Pneumonia may be due to an infection caused by any bacteria, virus, fungi or microbe. The most common caused of pneumonia are bacteria. Sometimes dust, chemicals, or food accidentally enter the lungs may also cause an inflammatory reaction that can lead to pneumonia."

My baby was not confine in the hospital yet.. he is under medication and observation until thursday. if he has still fever we need to visit his new pedia on thursday.

Inspite of the illness, my baby is still happy and playful.. though at some point he has bad mood maybe because he is feeling some pains. I just hope and pray that my baby will recover fast. Eventually, we will surpass this illness with our love and diligent care. I know God is taking care of my baby.. He will be fine soon.. Still including my baby in your prayers will be of great help and appreciated..
