How Much My Peace of Mind Cost

Yesterday morning, we made an unplanned visit to my son’s pediatrician because he was coughing so badly his throat hurt. He’s been coughing for more than 10 days now, and I already gave him two different cough medicines, but they didn’t seem to work. That’s when I decided to discontinue his cough medication, and that’s when his cough worsened.

Before going to the doctor’s clinic, I was texting her to ask for an antibiotic for my son, but she said she needed to see Justin first. Upon examination, she saw no sign of infection that may require antibiotic treatment. She also said Justin’s lungs were clear. This only meant one thing: Justin was suffering from allergic cough.

The doctor didn’t prescribe any cough medicine but says when Justin’s cough becomes too bothersome, then we should nebulize him. She also reminded us to continue Justin’s Montelukast and Seretide. I paid the good doctor Php600.00 (less than $14) for this visit. In reality, I paid this amount for my own peace of mind.

  1. I try avoiding drugs as much as I can for my kids. I'm glad you and your pedia decided not to give antibiotics. Aiden also has a cough and cold today, we are on a homeopathic rememdy.

    Hope he feels better soon.

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.
