I couldn’t help but notice that my son Justin hasn’t had colds or cough for almost two months now. That’s new. As far as I can remember, Justin always has colds or cough each month ever since he became a preschooler. Perhaps, that’s because he’s exposed to a lot of kids in school and to pollutants going to and from school.

I think the hot weather is agreeing with him. The last quarter of 2009, the cold months, was when he started having prolonged cough, which was just allergic cough, by the way. He was prescribed Montelukast and Seretide then until this month to help prevent recurrent cough and asthma.

Also, sometime in October or November last year when he had severe cough, his pediatrician noted that he was wheezing, which is indicative of asthma. That only happened once, so up to now I still refuse to accept that he has asthma, and I’m doing all I can to prevent him from suffering another attack.

I also believe that the Broncho-Vaxom that his pediatrician gave made him less susceptible to cough and colds. Justin had to take 1 capsule daily during 10 consecutive days for 3 months, preferably on an empty stomach. The content of the capsule may be poured into a drink if the child has difficulty swallowing it. In Justin’s case, I mixed the content of the capsule into his vitamins. Broncho-Vaxom comes in two forms: one for children and one for adults. The drug helps prevent respiratory tract infections.

I hope this streak (of not having cough and colds) continues. Nothing makes me happier as a mom than seeing my little boy happy, strong and healthy.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
