It's back...or did it really even go away...
The lab results are in and c-diff is back. When she was in Houston they tested her and it showed positive for c-diff. One week later we were admitted to our hospital here at home and found that her stool tested negative for c-diff. I guess we just assumed being on the antibiotic that it was gone. We finished the 20 days of Fladyl and never missed a dose. Friday was our last day and Monday night she began to show early signs. She is definetly not in as much pain and she is well hydrated. Those were two of her most severe symptoms last time we were in, so we think our pediatrician jump on this and got it very early. The thought is that she will have to just stay on this until her bowel surgery in early June. She is trying so feeds but with each feed she gets tummy troubles, nothing as bad as before. All in all things are better and hoping we can go home soon.
We called her pumonologist in Houston today as she was not keeping her sats up with the Bi-Pap. Being new at this not sure if he wants to add oxygen or adjust her setting on the machine.
On a side note, don't you think we need to request some pink hospital gowns??? Yellow totally washes her out!
