Brief Answer:
All the reports are normal

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

All the reports are normal. Though CRP is slightly elevated above the normal range, you need not worry unless it is more than 6.

The electrolytes and the CBC is also normal.

As I had suggested yesterday, unless there are danger signs which I explained to you about, you need not worry.

Hope my answer was helpful for you. Wish your kid good health.
