Pneumonia Again...

It's Mei Mei's turn this time. 

Her fever started on Tuesday, we took her to the GP on Thursday, the Paed on Saturday, and all ruled out pneumonia. When Monday the situation didn't improved, we decided to let her go for Nebulizer every 4 hours. However, after the 2nd dose, we felt something was not right and decided to have her done the X-ray. Results showed her right lung was covered with phlegm at the lower portion. So she had to be admitted right away, and doctor told us the standard antibiotics course for pneumonia took at least 5 days. 

This photo was taken on Day2, she had finally adapted to the new environment. Can you see the princess wall papers in her room? At least that's one reason she agreed to stay in this room, because it was rather noisy due to the special ventilation system, and she was very afraid of that sound in the beginning.    

SJ holding the Nebulizer mask on her own. This reminds me of her Jie Jie's experience 3 years ago. 

I didn't let Jie Jie visit her in the beginning because it could spread, and she felt very sad. So she made this card for Mei Mei. How sweet of her.  


SJ started to develop some rashes on her chest, which spread to her neck, legs and arms as days went by. Initially, doctor told us it's eczema so we were told to apply a mild steroid cream (Hydrocortisone cream 1%). By Day3, there's still no improvement so maybe it could be due to a bacteria caused by pneumonia. We're still waiting for the blood test to tell us. So far, SJ had done blood test and urine test. Doctor said it's not necessary to do the TB skin test for her since he's very sure she didn't had the bacteria.

So now, both Hubby and I took turns to camp in the hospital with her. Hopefully all the test results would turn out good.
