cough cough cough!

Everyone is down with cough. First start with Fearles, then pass it to Cruz, then daddy also caught the cough and sore throat. Cruz recover within few days, but Fearles cough from bad to worst. Had been three weeks already and he is still coughing and now is with phlegm! Brought him to see doctor twice, medicine finish, but he still cough, other than that he is still super active and "manja". :(

Fearles pass the virus to me, now we two coughing together and take medicine together. Since western medicine didn't work well with Fearles, now i have switch his medicine to chinese tradisional herbs. Every week i will boil some herbal soup for him to nourish his lung. Father in law gave me one chinese cough medicine pill, according to him, it is very good. After give Fearles the pills, I can see some improvement, less coughing and got appetite to eat, but i think for chinese medicine take longer time to see the result.

When Fearles having bad cough, the most i worried is he will throw out. There is one night while i was having my shower, hub was knocking on the shower room door telling me Fearles is vomit on the bed. I told him i was half way shower, not ask me to just walked out like that? Ask him to bring Fearles to clean up first then i will do the rest. After i'm done with my shower, i saw hub already shower Fearles and wrap him with three towels!!!! I just want to laugh! When come to this, i think all men are the same, don't know what to do. Agree?

This is almost everynight "drama", once Fearles cough, phlegm will stuck on the throat he feel uneasy, he just throw out, that make him feel better. After hub got the "first experience", second time, he get "cool" a bit, he didn't knock on the door, he bring Fearles to shower room and clean him up and told me Fearles vomit again. :)

Actually, we had a small pail in the room always stand by to catch the "gold", but Fearles like to throw out when i'm having my shower, but most of the time i manage to catch it before it dirty the bed.

Hope after he take the chinese medicine, he will recover soon. Poor Fearles, already a skinny boy, now i only can see bone on him. :(


this is the cough pills from chinese medicine hall, good. I am also taking it. Beside than cough pills, i give them cod liver oil also and different type of herbs, boil for soup or boil for water to drink. Haih.... when kids fall sick, we will try everything!

Coughing for 3 weeks, ahem, is too long time. Hope you are get well after taking the chinese med. Do you know that you can't take fish or any thing fishy when you are on Chinese med?

Try to avoid eating chicken and eggs if you are having cough

aitelyu, pengsan when they have cough. So much so that cough for so long (like my girl - more than 3 months), it's a norm already. haih !

normally i don't suggest for anyone to try chinese med but if you are into in, try the eu yan sang "how zhou san". my friend's bb was coughly badly too and she tried that for her bb, after 2 bottle (in powdery form), the coughing stopped. maybe you want to consider that?

Wrap with 3 towels?!?! Hahaha... I laughed at that one... sorry sorry.

Poor Fearles... when QQ coughs she throws up too, so I know how san fu it is for the kid, like vomiting the lungs out, right? But according to the doctor, they vomit the phelgm out too, and will feel better after that.

Why don't you try warm manuka honey? Seems to work for my kids.

The weather recently is really killing. Many people over here fall sick because of the bad weather. It can be extremely hot and the next minute will be heavy downpour.
Take care over there. Get well soon!

Poor Fearless, hope he get better soon!

Kids always fall sick - build antibodies! Chinese medication cures - depending on whether it is a heaty or cold cough, western medicine will just make you cough and cough till you get stomach cramps. They say must cough out the phlegm...but in the end, all the intestines also cough out!!! Hahahahaha!!!! My missus will nto agree with me - she;s a nurse!

Everyone at my home is having cough with green phlegm too. I've been boiling loh han guo drink and crysanthemum tea for everyone.

How do you get Fearles to drink the chinese med? I don't think my 2 boys will touch it at all. Even normal cough mixture it's difficult to give. Get well soon Fearles!

My gal also coughing..western medicine doesnt work on her and I start gave her the chinese medicine from Yu Yan Sang. Expensive but i can see the result also. Agreed it will recovered more slow. But she prefer chinese medicine more than the western medicine. At least she didnt cry when I gave the chinese medicine. :) Take care!

ROTFL. Your hubby so funnylah - 3 towels!!!


Hope Fearles will be better after taking the Chinese medicine. I myself have been coughing on and off for 3 months now.

Speedy recovery to u n Fearles. I feel it's good to vomit when they cough badly (ie we're ready to collect it, w/o making any mess) so that the phlegm will come out too.
