Alhamdulillah after 3 days in Kpmc ward Adib dah boleh discharge this afternoon. Alhamdulillah syukur sangat. Intially he was diagnosed with brochitis but after some sample test performed by his Paed, it was actually RSV; respiratory synctial virus.
Here's some info with regard.
Credit to google. Hehe.
RSV is the most common germ that causes lung and airway infections in infants and young children. Most infants have had this infection by age 2. Outbreaks of RSV infections most often begin in the fall and run into the spring.
The infection can occur in people of all ages. The virus spreads through tiny droplets that go into the air when a sick person blows their nose, coughs, or sneezes.
You can catch RSV if:
RSV often spreads quickly in crowded households and day care centers. The virus can live for a half an hour or more on hands. The virus can also live for up to 5 hours on countertops and for several hours on used tissues.
The following increase the risk for RSV:
So there it is.
So as per advised by paed, adib have to be warded (best option) and take the nebulizer 3 hourly for 24 hours then continues to 4 hourly for another 24 hours + percussion sess with the physiotherapist as his lungs and phlegm were not cooperative huhu. Just this morning paed loosen the neb period to 6 hourly and she also gives us 3 options; which is very typically dr afifah and thats why we like her :-). We chose to discharge of today and continue with inhaler at home until friday. And come back for a follow up on saturday. Yay! Finally alhamdulillah. So overall, 14x neb, 3x physio. Tapi adib ni active je. Takde pun demam n nangis. But he's a bit crancky sometimes perhaps he's bored to just stay indoor. Ye la sape tak bosan kan. Hehe.
And oh he's awake now. Till later.
