Via's cough got worse the last two days, she still had runny nose and she had a fever yesterday. So off to the doctor we went this morning. We went really early today as I had an exam I had to take at the office at 11:00 a.m. Luckily we were the first ones there and the pedia came early-even ahead of her assistants. After getting settled, she asked us in. She did the weighing herself and all the preliminary stuff. She said she's not worried about the runny nose. She listened to Via's lungs and now there's phlegm in her right lung. But it's good that she's coughing it up because it means the phlegm is loosening. Still, Ambroxil was prescribed to prevent the phlegm from thickening. Via was very fussy and at one point cried loudly opening her mouth wide. The doctor then saw that there were 4 molars about to come out. That was the reason for the fever she said. Expect her to get a fever on and off until the molars are about 1/4 out. Via will have difficulty eating so she should have a soft diet. The doctor was surprised that she gained weight even with the teething pain. She said it's good that she can handle it. It's a relief that it's not really anything terrible and I got to work only 30 minutes late.
