After the highest sick visit, he was prescribed more pretty tough antibiotics along with a compendium time on steroids. His cough improved temporarily but that his cough came back again. So this was a come-up and sick visit.
He gained a small in number pounds this time (despite his out of money appetite) which is fantastic. They are uniformly pushing for more calories because his development is just so slow lately, and his elevation percentile is tapering from where it used to have existence. We will be switching to a higher calorie form, which should push a few additional calories per ounce.
He has been having a parcel of issues with reflux, but our GI learned man decided a few weeks ago to try a contrary type, and it seems to subsist working. We may have to try a course of Flagyl soon if he calm continues to have issues. We are in like manner increasing his Bethanechol which helps his bear move food along faster.
His taste was a little low, and I power of determination be adding salt to some of his G-hollow cylinder feeds as it is a struggle to reach him to drink one (1) bottle of Gatorade a generation.
His Fev1 was 79%. I comprehend it can be much higher. So, we had a rare. Do another long course of parole antibiotics (the last course just cleared tot~y the bacteria out of his colon and his real hard on his stomach, which mode lots of time in the bathroom), or answer a course of IV antibiotics to sinless him out. Doing IV antibiotics seems to subsist the best choice at this time. It’s been a not many years since his last tune up, such it is needed. The good word is he has only been culturing bacteria that responds well to wide-reaching spectrum antibiotics. The plan is to wait till school is out, go in as being the PICC line and some X-rays, and for this reason do the rest of the IV antibiotics at home. Hopefully this give by ~ clear all the junk out of his lungs in such a manner he can have a summer liberate from antibiotics, steroids and IV’s!
