I spoke to Austin’s CF nurse today about our transfer from UCSF to Stanford and about copies of his medical records. I also mentioned that Austin has been coughing more than usual, which we definitely noticed since he usually coughs only during or right after his morning/night treatments and physio.
She suggested that we put him on antibiotics for two weeks to a month. Austin had a throat culture a week ago that did grow staph, but they were planning to wait a bit to give antibiotics since it didn’t appear to be affecting his lungs in anyway. Now that he’s coughing more, I guess it’s possible that it has started to affect his lungs.
I hope this little cough of his clears up quick. I’m really sad that we have to put him on antibiotics already. He’s only 11 weeks old!
