Go Away Cough!

March 22, 2009

Okay, so I stole this title from another Leukemia blog. What is the deal with leukemia and coughing?  

  • Lowered immunity >>> more viral infections

From reading comments and websites, it appears that coughing, and coughing, and coughing is something that happens. The comments I read also indicated that several rounds of antibiotics were also used to treat the coughing AND that nothing showed up on the x-rays.

Great. I feel no closer to solving the coughing problem. At first we were told by the medical personnel to avoid humidifiers because the water contained in them provide a wonderful home to microbes. BUT, we did get the go ahead to get one as long as we clean it out regularly, and to dump the water each morning.  The dangers of using a warm mist, primarily involve the child touching the unit. So we will be getting a cool mist humidifier. Ideally, this will cut down on the ***COUGHING***.

Let’s get rid of this cough!

 

My mom just sent me an interesting link about RSV, leukemia
