Last Thursday, Nov. 19, 2009, my mum called me that she couldn’t come here in Dumaguete City, for my birthday next week and to attend a 3-day conference as well, which was supposedly last Thursday was her flight because Didong, my nephew, was sick. They, my mumand dad and elder sister (Didong’s mum) were just thinking of a very common colds and flu. However, when they had him checked by the medical practitioner, Didong was advised to be admitted after diagnosed of having bronchopneumonia. Bronchopneumonia is actually a pneumonia in bronchos. There is an acute inflammation of the bronchial tube due to infection caused by bacteria. Actually, Didong is asthmatic. When one is asthmatic, we couldn’t able to disregard the secondary effects leading to bronchopneumonia especially for pediatric patients.
We’re just hoping Didong could get back home as early as now so before his birthday celebration.
