Baby with bronchiolitis

AS2 is hovering around 9+kg. She was 9.45kg pre Raya and 9.75kg last night (different scale though). The Saturday- a day before Raya, following Saturday and Monday, she was seen by Dr.Eric for her cough. Nebuliser of Pulmicort and Ventolin/or Combivent was the mainstay. Pretty lucky she did not spike fever. Unfortunately here we are 2 weeks later- baby begins coughing again, no thanks to big sis.

Big sis on the other hand is spiking temperature up till 40C. This is going to be the third day of fever. Coughing with runny nose is slightly longer. Oh, she can take meds with less resistance! That's a huge a achievement for a feisty girl who previously had to be restrained for her meds.

I have managed syrup Zyrtec, Durotuss and Zithromax. I'm still relying on suppositories of diclofenac 12.5mg and paracetamol 250mg. With very high temperature- we cannot afford dosage reduction (ie by her spitting out). I am starting her on Singulair as her MDI Alvesco has run out. She has the similar nebuliser regime as lil sis.

Disclaimer: Meds are as per paediatrician's prescription with mommy-doc-dispenser nursing her.
