So we went back to Hospiten Riviera Maya today to have a follow up appointment. The doctor did all the regular check up stuff (vitals, listening to inhalations and exhalations, thumping on Hans' back, etc.) then he looked at the x-rays again and ordered another round of blood work.
Turns out it's just viral bronchitis that is causing the fever. He sent us home with a prescription for an expectorant (his coughs changed from dry to mucousy the other day) and some other stuff that should help with the fever.
His fever was down this morning, but the doctor said to continue taking the meds for a few days. The blood work he ran today ruled out an infection.
Everyone we talked to since he got sick said, "You'll KNOW when it's dengue." Apparently you feel like your bones are going to break just from the pressure of your body laying on the bed!
