Our CT is sick yet he seems okay and like his normal self. We brought him to his pedia yesterday morning for us to make sure it is just a cough. He has colds too. His sleeping pattern is not quite the usual when we transferred here.
The pedia gave CT Clariget for antibiotics though his cough just started last Tuesday unlike before when it is given when the cough does not go away in a week’s time, coz the pedia said he has a lot of phlegm. We started with the antibiotics at six in the evening and the dosage was 5ml for two times a day. CT does not like the antibiotics though it has an orange flavor. He would resist when we let him drink it through the use of a dropper. On the last 1ml, he vomitted (excuse for those who read this while eating). For me it is quiet a good sign in my hope that he was able to throw out some of the phlegm he would just swallow at times. Sometimes I am tempted to tickle his throat so he can throw up the phlegm. On the second time we had him take the antibiotics early this morning, the same thing happened. He vomitted upon swallowing the 5th 1ml of the atibiotics. We saw some phlegm in it. I guess when you become a mom, you would not go pukey when you see some vomit and it is my baby son after all.
So I say this is one good expectorant. This evening after returning from the anticipated mass at the nearby church, though CT still did not like taking the antibiotics, he was able to swallow all without throwing up this time but as usual he was crying. He stopped though as I let him stand and diverted his attention so he would stop crying. The past few days, our sleep has not been as restful as I would like it to be. CT would sometimes wake up and just like the other day, we woke before 5AM and I just played and talked with him to keep him company though I was so sleepy then. Well I can only pray CT’s health will get back to normal. We can never risk our health. And talking of health, I remember my friend was asking me in an email about this North Carolina health insurance. I will have to check on that and get back to her email. They are planning to transfer there from another state. I think her hubby was relocated by his company that is why they are going to move to NC. I am quite surprised by her email actually. It has been awhile since I last heard from her as I have no time these days to check on my Friendster.
