My Husband had a really bad coughing attack this morning and has gone downhill ever since. I rang and asked to speak to the Dr this afternoon as he started a temperature. The Dr rang back within a quarter of an hour. She has prescribed Doxycycline and said if he was any worse by 5.30pm to call and she would call in. I went out to get the prescription and do a little shopping. I left two paracetamol at his bedside. When I returned he hadn't taken them as I didn't put any water for him. So he was progressively worse and shivering. I gave him the paracetamol and made a couple of hot water bottles. I wrapped him in a blanket as well. When the paracetamol wore off we unwrapped him. I will give him more paracetamol before he goes to bed. The Dr said she will be calling in tomorrow anyway.
