My thirty-three-year-old son is totally bedridden and is fed Osmolite

My thirty-three-year-old son is totally bedridden and is fed Osmolite through a g-tube 24/7. He has recently recovered from a mild case of shingles. He has developed an angry red rash which blankets his back and shoulders (no pustules) and has been prescribed Cefdinir for a bacterial skin infection, as well as a course of Fluconazole (tablet- form via g-tube). HIs usual medications are liquid Prilosec (Zegerid) twice a day, Keppra and generic Tegretol twice per day, Carafate twice per day, and Gavascon twice per day for motility.
(He cannot tolerate Reglan.) I also give him four ounces of live yogurt and Lactinex once per day via g-tube. My current problem is how to separate the Cefdinir from other magnesium-containing medications by two hours, not to mention his Osmolite, which contains iron, and maintain the efficacy of Cefdinir.
Thank you, Pat Keller

I have been told that my son s left side of his heart is larger than the right side. The cadiologist says that it looks as though it is functioning correctly, but would like to see him again in three months. Today he was running and held his heart, but said his throat hurt....does anyone know what the normal heart rate for a three year old is? Should I get a second opinion or wait the three months? For the smart alec answer, I took him to the cardiologist for an innocent heart murmur and it showed up on the ecocardiogram
