Hello and welcome to HCM,
The highlights of your history are high grade fever
, decreased appetite, cough
and bilateral lung infiltrates in upper lobes.
this picture is suggestive of lung infection
with retention of carbondioxide causing acidosis.
You are on iv antiobiotics.
The antibiotics are very effective against a large number of bacteria.
The further management will depend on the response of the patient. You have mentioned that the patient is responding well.
The acidosis will be corrected as soon as the air transfer is corrected.
The bilateral infiltrated may take a little longer to clear but it will clear soon.
So, there is nothing much to worry.
Take care of hypertension
Rest is fine.
Thanks and take care.
Dr Shailja P Wahal
