Mike got a cold (me too) when kids here last week. I am hacking away, but not too bad.
He has gotten really ill today. 100 temp. Sore throat, productive cough.
He takes Dapsone 1x a week as a prophylactic antibiotic.
I called Miami Transplant Coordinator's Line.
They called in a Zpak for him.
Told him to take Musinex DM and Tylenol (2pills 2x a day only) for the fever.
Lots of fluids, lots hot and cold.
He is to go to ER if short of breath, fever 102 and they will coordinate with local ER…bring pager number of Transplant Coordinator to ER.
If serious, they will order a hospital to hospital transfer.
He has gotten really sick in the last few hours.
