welcome to HealthcareMagic
Fever;increased blood count and cough can be due to infection and if it is severe it can form pneumonia also.If you have been treated with antibiotics and the blood count has reverted back to normal then you have recovered from the infection.Only thing you need to see is if you really had a patch of pneumonia then you will have to repeat the x-ray to see if the pneumonia is resolved.So repeat the X-ray if your doctor says so.
