ako naman here's my kwento:
march 16-17: for 2-3days may ubu-ubo na si baby, initially gave him Mucosolvan and NSS nebulization. pero meron pa din. on the 3rd day, pina-checkup na namin. Binigyan sya antibiotic, mucosolvan and asmavent.
for a week after maubos antibiotic gumaling sya for 2 days. - thats from march 19-25). so ok na, umuwi kami ng province where he will celebrate his 1st bday.
march 28 (his 1st bday pa man din), napansin kong may sipon-sipon at sininat ng gabi (maybe sa pagod din sa party nya the whole day).
we gave him tempra.
march 30 pauwi kami to manila (with continous sipon at ubo pa din).
from the span of the trip 1pm-6pm natulog lang sya at nasa manila na kami napansin ko ang "paalon" na paghinga... as in hirap na siya huminga at even sa sasakyan madidinig mo ang breathing nya.
Kinabahan na talaga ako, (the Pedia-Pulmo i know is not available - she's in MMC)
I rushed him sa Emergency (Madocs, pinakamalapit that time) and he was admitted (kinuhanan siya CBC, xtray etc), nebulized right away and with Oxygen being monitored.
My baby was admitted from march 30-april6... sa hospital kami nag-Holy week.
We got home but to continue antibiotic and nebulization for 2 days.
we we're happy then at ok na siya. sabi ng doc, ok with the pag-ubo kasi it means lumalabas or "pumuputok" na ito.
BUT! Night of April 8, napansin ko medyo sininat na naman at again, nahirapang huminga.
the very next morning, we went to a PEDIA-PULMO. And the Doctor said that its not Pneumonia but its ASTHMA we are dealing with!
(im not sure if its mild or what)
Oh My God!!!
so ngaun, he's under a regimen we are strictly following: Ventolin and Seretide inhaler with Prolix (a steroid - doc assured us that's its fine for my baby).
We are somewhat relieved that finally, we know ano ang sakit niya at we are treating him and hopefully for life.
nakakainis lang at ang dami pa napagdaanan and all.
Sana mga mommies, you learned kahit papano.
and we all pray na mawala ito sa baby ko.
