Oh I am sorry XXXXXXX

Yes we can continue now.
He was hostipatized and not now, he is discharged now.
He is on right medications.
But, his conditions will take time to improve.
ok - but he looks very tired and not able to have food and has difficulty in breathing.
with his age, my husband is scared that he may not recover

and critical satge of asthma.
Loss of appetite is due to breathlessness.
I think he needs supportive treatment apart from his medications.
like what type?
It would be better if he is in hospital where frequent nebulization can be given.
He may need antibiotics if he is not on any.
he is already taking antibiotics
You can give him liquid
Take care that he is not dehydrated.
but if this goes severe, do we have place of recover
as he is getting deteriorated day by day.
as IgE is also very high
as i already told u.
It would be difficult for me to predict it as I have not examined him.
will this fungus in the lungs is completely curable?
Fungal infections are very tricky to treat.
Considering his age, it would be difficult to say.
It all depends on how his body reacts to the medications.
ok XXXXXXX - do u recommend any other tests related to this problem
to be done.
Doing further testing will not have any more advantage.
so we can treat him as much as possible correct?
Just keep monitoring his saturation levels.
Take care of overall nutrition and hydration.
Give him back rest while sleeping.
Rest, follow your doctor's instructions.
Is there any thing else I can help you with?
I have one more query related to my daughter - can i proceed
she is 10 yrs old and her neck looks elongated and shoulders bit slanted and actually she is too tall for age, i am worried about her neck and shoulder positioned and she is very thin.
any advice on this XXXXXXX
she is nearing 4.8 or 4.8 feet height.
4.8 or 4.9
Does she have any other medical problems?
she doesnt have food, like all other kids thats all.
we need to force her to have food
What is your and your husband's height?
and he is 5.8
but my grandpa and my brother are 6.2
i am not sure if this appearance is due to her height or if any bone abnormality is related to to it and worried.
It could be just genetic. Based on your history, I do not find anything worrisome with your daughter.
and when she gets little plumpy body probably.
Yes. it could be.
In case you have doubt, you can get her evaluated once by your physician.
thanks so much for your time XXXXXXX
Thanks for consulting me.
thats all i had.
Wish you good health.
Bye for now.
