I can understand your concern but the problem has been done from your side itself.
Why would you wait for so long? And were the tests suggested by some doctor or you got it done on your own.
It's good that you have admitted now, if you would have taken treatment in the beginning itself you wouldn't have had to worry about the hospitalisation and the hospital charges and the patient also would have recovered soon.
Since its been so long, the recovery will also be slow however the treatment is going right.
Keep him admitted as long as the doctor says.

Hi there...I can understand your concern for your brothers help. Firstly it is good that you have admitted him in a hospital. Fever with such high temperatures and for long duration, definitely requires admission. Sometimes fever can persist for a few weeks in spite of the antibiotics. The antibiotics mainly prevent any secondary acquired infections. If you are still not satisfied with the treatment you are receiving in the hospital, you can ask them for a summary of the investigations done and treatment given, and ask for a second opinion from another general physician you trust.
