Couple of days ago, James has been sneezing a lot. I know from there that he would soon have a cough or colds or even both. Sobrang lamig na kasi ng weather ngayon. True enough, I noticed every night that he’s coughing as if nangangati yung lalamunan nya. I let him drink his medicine for cough, Asmalin Broncho was the last syrup he’s been given at 2ml. Although it wasn’t consistent na nakakainom sya. It was like, once or twice a day lang naaalala ng baby sitter ko. I noticed na parang hindi nawawala yung cough so last Tuesday, less than a week when he started ng paubo – ubo, I had him checked at Alabang Medical Clinic in Las Pinas. He gained weight so his dosage was increased at 3ml. He was also given an antihistamine and disudrin for his colds.
He was also asked to be nebulized for 4 days dahil parang ma phlegm na yung cough nya.
During those time na sobrang tindi ng ubo nya, he cries at night sa kakaubo and he’s quite irritated too. His nose is clogged din kasi aside pa sa paubo-ubo nya. There were also time pa na nasusuka sya sa kakaubo. Nakakaawa talaga.. sleepless nights.
Currently, I can see that he’s feeling a lot better. Hindi na kasi sya masyadong umiiyak sa gabi unlike the last couple of days. Anyhow, I am still looking forward in bringing him to his doctor for follow up checkup. Para lang malaman if his cough got better ba. He’s continuing his anti-histamine for 2 weeks while his meds for cough and colds will be until tomorrow only.
His pedia advised me to get his vaccines completed daw. As of the moment kasi, hindi ko pa rin nako complete yung vaccines nya. I am starting to worry kasi I can see nowadays how important it is. Tama naman si Doc, investment din naman ‘to kasi it is an additional protection din for them. I noticed that it’s mostly cough and colds ang nakukuha ni James which the pedia suggested to get him the Pneumococcal vaccine. It costs P3,500 on his pedia which is definitely nakakaiyak pero I have heard of Jacob’s Ladder Immunization and I am looking forward to check kung ok ba dun.
Any suggestions, Mommies?
