It's been a while since my son had his cough - I don't know if it's because it's too cold, too dry, bacterial, viral or allergic reactions of some sort (he was diagnosed with slight asthma when he was a little over 1 year old). There's just too many possible causes and being in a foreign land (China) it's really hard for us to know which ones to let him take because they really have a different way of treating sickness here. It was also found out that his tonsils were inflamed and because of that, he was recommended to have IV medications that would last for 5-6 days. Their IV treatment is outpatient so it means each day, they will put the needle on and after a few hours, when the medicine runs out, remove it. The following day, same thing. That will go on for 5-6 days and I don't want my son treated that way... So we decided not to go through with the IV medication. The doctors had to ask us to sign a waiver that we decided not to go through with the medication because they feared it might make the infection get worst. We tried using the supplements and cough medicines that we've brought from the Philippines. We've seen improvements, though slow, but somehow everyday things are getting better.

Yesterday, we started him with taking Chinese herbs (yes, those bitter herbs that i need to cook and then he drinks the soup) with honey to make the taste bearable. I am just so blessed that my son drinks them in spite the awful taste - of course with some creative manipulations and rewards. He is also into antibiotics as his tonsils have puss. He will have his check up again this Sunday to see how his tonsils and lungs are but even before that day comes, I am declaring that God has already healed him. I taught my son to declare this: BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS I AM HEALED, and every time he coughs, he boldly declares that. He may be taking several things to help his body, but HEALING COMES FROM THE LORD. I believe God can use anything or anyone to bring that healing... Just as Jesus healed the blind man by asking him to put mud over his eyes or Elisha asking the king during during his time to dip himself in the Jordan river 7 times, God can do anything He pleases to let that healing come.

God still heals these days... The methods may be different but the same God that raised Jesus from the dead is capable of healing my son. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

amen to that, the Lord is the always the same! unchanging! I'm so sorry your little one has been sick, but I know the Lord being the great physician, is watching over him. I'm so thankful your son knows at a young age too about Jesus and knows to call upon him

I hope all will be well with your son Beth. Sorry to hear about his medical challenges. I too have asthma (caused by allergies) which tends to worsen at the onset of cold I think because my resistance gets low I could not fight off the allergens around. That was scary, to have IV treatments for asthma, I never had that, maybe it is that way for a child? I really do not know. I'll pray both of you to be well. Yes, definitely, God heals.
