bearbear to the rescue :D..

no fish prawn oso can..

Aidan's 'cold' was much worse than I thought..Doc declared that he had bronchitis [chest cold] and his respiratory tract was pretty inflamed which meant that the tubes in his lungs were plugged with mucus.And it was only later in the afternoon yesterday that his cough became more wet and he was wheezing..Bugger refuses to let me clean up his mucus after he sneezed and when i tried to use the muscus extractor, he whipped it outta my hands and started playing with it..oh man..Thankfully, he's not very whiny and clingy..He's extremely playful and active and leaving a trail of sticky mucus everywhere he goes..eew~

Earlier in the afternoon after drinking his milk on the bed, he started coughing quite badly and promptly puked some of it out together with a batchful of phelgm and mucos..Some landed on the bedsheet but most of it landed on poor piggy. It was actually a good sign as that meant he was able to clear most of the phlegm that has been bothering him..He seemed to be okay after that, coz he was able to breath much easier then. Poor piggy was another story though.He was totally soaked with milk and goo-ey phlegm and I had to pry him outta Aidan's hands (he refused to let him go) so that I could throw the soiled plushtoy into the wash..

So now Aidan has to settle for bearbear instead..Begrudingly tho :)

matchmaking session..

poor boy..wet eyes, wet nose and dribbling away too..

Oh well, just pray that he recovers fully by Chinese New Year. The paed did say it will take a while for him to recover..about a week or so..Won't be good to bring him visiting and exposing his germs to other kids...

Poor Aidan, get well soon!
Jan. 13th, 2004 12:48 am (UTC)
Poor Baby, get well soon!

Poor Aidan...must have really miss his piggy. He's not even hugging bear bear. Hope he gets well soon.
Jan. 13th, 2004 04:44 am (UTC)
actually, piggy is the only plushtoy aidan hugs..he usually ignores the rest of the toys or simply just pick them up and fling them away..

Jan. 13th, 2004 01:00 am (UTC)
hope he get well soon. thot of getting the sharp purifier. heard it's good.
Jan. 13th, 2004 04:45 am (UTC)
hmmm..now thinkin abt it, it may be a good idea to get one..Will check it out with hubby this weekend..But very ex eh!
Jan. 13th, 2004 01:08 am (UTC)
Oh, sure, there is definitely a link . My paed always tells me, Kids with Bronchitis or Bronchiolitis ( what Dayne had when he was 12mths old)may lead to Asthma later..Gotta take care yah. Mike will not smoke when Dayne is around. He wil have to lock himself in the kitchen when he is doing that.
it's a good thing that Aidan is not so grouchy.
Jan. 13th, 2004 04:42 am (UTC)
What's the difference between Bronchitis and Bronchiolitis..both are upper respiratory tract infection right?

Hubby also closes the study door and smokes..so Aidan doesnt really get the full impact of 2nd hand smoke..but still, i think it still affects him somehow..

Hmm..seems like some of us have smoking husbands :P~ Have u been tryin to get him to quit?

I think the mucous extractor is good. I thought C recovered quicker when we "sucked" the stuff out. She resisted like hell and cried but it's got to be done. At least it prevents the gooe-ey stuff from travelling back down her throat and causing an inflammation. Hope A get well soon.
Jan. 13th, 2004 04:39 am (UTC)
hmm..mebbe i should try it again later when hubby is back..u have to drip saline into her nostrils first right? I tried doin it a few times earlier but in vain..
Well, on the positive side, he seems to be 'dripping' less liao..I think at least piggy didn't get soiled in vain :P

Do be careful with chest/lung infections. One of my friends gets pneumonia almost every winter and she finally went to see a specialist who diagnosed her with brochiectasis. My friend probably had a bad infection which caused this, and so some of her alveoli remain dilated and this predisposes her to infections. She now travels with a prescription for very strong antibiotics so that her condition doesn't get worse.

I hope you can convince your husband at least to not smoke around Aidan. My dad used to smoke a few cigs a day but he never smoked at home or in front of the kids. In fact I never knew he was a smoker until much later! I really appreciate his gesture.
Jan. 13th, 2004 04:37 am (UTC)
Actually, to give hubby some credit, he never smokes when Aidan's around. Often, when he does especially when we are outdoors, he'll keep a distance away. But I'd read that smoke residue on clothes can also affect the kid esp when u carry him after smoking.

Yeah..if Aidan has symptoms like hacking/phlegmy cough and runny nose, I'll always make sure I bring him to the doc prompto..I will only self medicate if it's fever..I'm usually quite hesitant abt havin docs prescribe antibiotics to Aidan but so far [thankfully], the paeds I've been to do not do so..

u may want to get your dh to suck the mucus out using his mouth....that's when my dh does when E refuses to let me extract the mucus out....damn effective!

Jan. 13th, 2004 04:46 am (UTC)
the extractor im usin is oso by usin the mouth to suck out the mucos but he keep on movin abt when i try to place the 'contraption' near his nose..erm..when u say suck the mucus out usin mouth..do u mean..erm, 'manually'?

Poor Aidan... Get well soon for CNY!!!

Since he is having bronchitus, very often if left unattended, it may lead to asthma.

His lungs are now weak, another point to take note is stuff toys, try not to give him those with fur, he may get sensitive to it.
Jan. 13th, 2004 04:48 am (UTC)
yeah i do hope he'll be well by CNY..

Thanks for ur advise..thankfully, all the plush toys he have (or rather those that are in bed with him) aren't the furry sort...He actually hates the furry softtoys so he doesnt go near them at all..
Jan. 13th, 2004 01:41 am (UTC)
he looks so cute even when hes sick.
Hope he get well real real soon.
Jan. 14th, 2004 12:34 am (UTC)
heh..i thought he looked very blur..where got cute..with red nose n wet eyes..

oh jus wanna note, i think u look like the singapore star search guy winner with ur new do :P
Jan. 13th, 2004 01:42 am (UTC)
Hope Aidan gets well soon. I've got a Sharp air purifier in my room and its very good, you might want to consider using this. It can also purify a room that has cigarette smoke/smell. My FIL is a smoker but he will smoke outside the apartment. There was one day he wanted to bring Charlotte down for a walk and I reminded him that he can't smoke if he's carrying Charlotte. I was relieved after he replied saying that he won't do that.
Jan. 13th, 2004 04:31 am (UTC)
My FIL smokes too..and he's conscious of not smoking when Aidan's near him. Hubby does that too..

Hmm..actually..hubby was lookin at the purifier before..I'd said it wasnt necessary coz i thought it was a glorified humidifer :P..Maybe we should seriously consider gettin..How much is it again?

really sorry to hear that Aidan is sick..

im sure he will get well very soon so dun worry too much ok? :) *hugs*
Jan. 14th, 2004 12:36 am (UTC)
thanks dear..im actually not that worried..just feel bad seein him so chum but thankfully, he still eats and play well :)
Jan. 13th, 2004 02:13 am (UTC)
I know I've been bugging hubby to try to lessen his smoking or if possible quit entirely but...*sigh*

same problem here: I couldn't stop DH from smoking but we made a pact. No smoking when Ethan and I are around. So now DH is only a smoker behind my back...and so this way we lessen the amount of second hand smoke that Ethan gets.

Jan. 13th, 2004 04:28 am (UTC)
Hubby doesnt smoke infront of Aidan either..he's been doing that ever since aidan was born. there's only one room which hubby is allowed to smoke and that's in the study room..I guess the problem is that sometimes, Aidan does come into the room and the residue of the smoke could have gotten to him.
Jan. 13th, 2004 03:33 am (UTC)
Poor Aidan, hope he will recover soon.
Jan. 13th, 2004 05:17 am (UTC)
Aw... poor drippy boy...

My kids all have asthma too. The dr told me that as long as one parent has it, it passes down to the kids. Doesn't matter that I don't have it, none of the kids will take after me and be asthma free.

But it's been ok. Mostly bronchitis,and only once did we need the neabuliser (sp?). Jordan has the mildest, and Megan has the most severe of the 3. She's the only one who wheezes audibly.

Joe never gets attacks, just breathlessness that's fixed with 2 puffs of ventolin.

Er... I rambled, sorry. Heh.

Hope the drippy boy dries up soon!!

Eh, better not ah, after I oso sick!!
Jan. 13th, 2004 07:33 am (UTC)
The dr told me that as long as one parent has it, it passes down to the kids

no way..i din know that?! Means its a guaranteed thingy that Aidan will have asthma? Well, just hope that if he does have it, it will be mild and hopefully will be okay by adulthood.
