Irza was admitted to hospital

On Thursday (16/2), Irza was admitted to KK Women's and Children's Hospital due to pro-longed febrile fit. Since the fit was quite long (more than half an hour), Irza had breathing difficulties causing low level of oxygen in his blood. Therefore, he needed to be admitted to the Children's Intensive Care Unit (CICU) for further observation.

CTScan was performed to check any possibility of brain injury, while Lumbal Puncture (LP) was performed to check possibility of brain infection (meningitis). The good news, there was no sign of of brain injury nor brain infection based on the CTScan and LP results, even though we needed to wait for 2-3 days to get the full LP results. Alhamdulillah.

Irza's condition was improved so he was transferred to the High Dependency (HD) ward on Saturday (18/2), and eventually was transferred to normal ward on Sunday (19/2). And since there was no fever detected on the past two days (Sunday and Monday), the doctor certified him to be discharged from the hospital on Monday (20/2), and he has been going back home since then.

Thanks for all who offer their full supports and prayers for Irza's recovery, including those who come to the hospital to visit (thanks Dini, Nonong, Roger, Rebecca, teacher Hidayah and teacher Mas), also via e-mail, SMS (thanks Zul, Amel), phone, chat (thanks Deden, Nadia, Rachel) and blog (thanks Teh Inong).
