Pneumonia

Note : Just a short update as I'm blogging using my iPhone. I didn't bring my laptop with me as I was expecting a very short holiday in KL and things did not turned out as planned. Will visit all your blogs once I got my laptop this weekend.

--------------------------------------

We arrived from Jakarta to KL last Wednesday around 11pm. We brought Gwen to the hospital the following day as she was still having cough and phlegm during that time.

The Paed wanted to have a chest X-ray done on Gwen. We brought Gwen to the Radiology dept for the X-ray.

Our hearts dropped to the floor when the Paed told us that Gwen's right lung has pneumonia!

Gwen needs to be admitted to the hospital immediately for 5 days.

Gwen was admitted last Thursday (2nd June 2011) and she has been discharged on Monday yesterday. She stayed for 4 days in the hospital.

Gwen is ok now. I didn't here anymore chesty noise today!

Hubs already flew back to Jakarta yesterday morning and Gwen and I had to cancel our flights and we will be staying in KL until July 9. Gwen is having a long summer holiday now.

Some photos taken using my iPhone. Most photos were taken using my digicam. Will blog in more detail soon when I have the chance.



Gwen got used to her needle pricked hand for Antibiotic administration thru IV.




The machine used for the IV.



Nebulizer 3 times a day everyday.




Finally, Gwen was all smile when she was discharged yesterday.

Medication to be taken at home.

Good to know that Gwen is well taken care of and well treated in the hospital. I was there 7 days with my elder too, when she got Pneumonia. After that, she has become much better. I wish Gwen best of health forever.

BoeyJoey June 8, 2011 at 6:03 PM  

oh dear... sorry to hear what happened. this post reminds me when QQ was hospitalised for pnemonia and bronchitis too... the medicine cocktail was scary! when she was discharged that time, she was still wheezing... her pead said he can't keep her in the hospital forever :-(. glad that Gwen is ok now. take care of her well, and hope she will be strong and healthy after this!

Alice Law June 8, 2011 at 10:02 PM  

Glad tht Gwen is getting better now, I reckon double boiled gingeng for her would help to strengthen her lungs!(my mum's advice)

Juan Juan too just discharged frm the hosp due to bacterial infection, I certainly understand how your heart sank whn you heard her diagnosis! You too, take care and keep well!

ChloeRuoyi June 8, 2011 at 10:17 PM

Ann June 9, 2011 at 12:19 PM  

oh..sorry about the experience. Glad that you don't hear the chest cough anymore. Now a days very hard to get well.

Do take care. Maybe can look up propolis. Go for the 100% propolis, not the blend. I am giving this to my kids now a days. Seems to help.

Serene June 9, 2011 at 4:02 PM  

OMG! So heart pain seeing Gwen suffering! Nasty phlegm, pls go awayyyyy..... You must be very tired too mummygwen, take good care!

CathJ June 9, 2011 at 6:29 PM

So glad to hear that she's all well now. Luckily the KL Paed did a proper diagnosis n Gwen was given the appropriate treatment. So heart-wrenching seeing her bandaged hand.

Linda June 16, 2011 at 7:20 AM  

last time my small daughter, zihan has to keep on taking singular for at least a month after recovery from pneumonia. Doctor said it's for strenghtening her lung....

Take care Gwen....

net earner June 16, 2011 at 1:32 PM  

Glad that Gwen has recovered. Pearl had a prolonged dry cough not longer, I gave her Manuka Honey & propolis, it seems to be helpful.

Debbie Y June 19, 2011 at 12:32 AM  

glad to hear that she is fine now. You too take a good rest....

Alice Phua June 21, 2011 at 4:26 PM  

HOpe Gwen has completely healed by now. Take care. Take a good rest yourself too, Mummy! :-)

Poor Gwen! Hope she's fully recovered by now! Have a fun holiday back here in kl ;) xoxo

Hi my daughter also a pneumonia about 1 month ago of the right lung. She was in for 48 hrs and been ok since. But just watch out for croup as she contacted that about 1 month after. There immune system is so low they pick everything up. Glad she is doing ok now.
