Acute Bronchitis

I’m nursing my son for three days now and I’m praying that he will be ok. As a mom, it hurts me to see that my son is sick and if only I can take his sickness, I will do it. It pains me because I can’t do anything, all I can do is to give him the medicine that he dislikes and to persuade him to drink milk and eat his food which is not easy.

As I mentioned in my old post, we went to Max’s EDSA and we also visited my sister. My son was busy playing games in laptop and all of a sudden, he vomited. I have no idea why he vomited but I was already worried. He has no fever but he was not active. We decided to leave early so he can rest.

Then last Monday, he had fever already, we can’t check the temperature because our ever reliable thermometer has no battery so we just went to the hospital. We went to different pedia because we can’t wait anymore till 2PM (his pedia’s schedule).

I thought it was a flu but I checked the medical certificate again, it is acute bronchitis, according to drugs.com “Acute bronchitis is swelling and irritation in child’s air passages. The irritation may cause him to cough or have other breathing problems. Acute bronchitis often starts because of another illness, such as cold or the flu.” In addition it last for about two weeks and not a serious illness. Oh no, that is too long. Next check-up is on Monday.
