Gerald was back at the starbase’s sickbay within 2 days of his last visit, doing his best to stretch out the medication but remembering that he wasn’t going to let himself get complacent. He approached and knocked on the bulkhead, “Dr. Bonner? Sorry I’m a day late.” He had been caught up in a few projects on the base and wanted to get those finished before too long.

Alexis looked up. “Gerald, come in. Have a seat.” She had been going over files that day. “I was getting ready to call you. How are you settling in?” While he talked she transferred some information to a PaDD and handed it to him.
“So I’ve looked at your immuno-suppressant. And, as I told you, it wasn’t lasting long enough, so I’ve been working on it. This dose is different. It is stronger, but it’s made to last longer as well. So hopefully the increased strength won’t bother you too much since your metabolism was blowing through the previous dosage. It can cause headaches due to dehydration, so instead of 8 glasses of water a day I’d like you to increase that to 12. 96 oz a day. If you get headaches come back and see me. There is also the possibility of nausea. If that happens I can give you something for that as well.” This information was contained on the PaDD along with the warning signs of rejection that Gerald would already be familiar with.
“Have you had to replace any thing in the last couple days?” Alexis asked.
