Noah has been sick off and on for the last several weeks and tested positive for c-diff last week. He started oral Flagyl right away and after 8 days, there was still no improvement. On Wed, he got quite a bit worse and his pediatrician wanted him admitted. They didn't feel comfortable having him admitted at home, so they sent us up to U of M Wed night. Since then they have started Vanco and IV flagyl and IV fluids. He has had fevers off and on, belly pain and the ever-present diarrhea. The decision was made this morning to take him off tube feeds altogether and start TPN to let his colon and stomach rest. I am not sure how long he will be here. C-diff is so rough on anyone and Noah is having an especially hard time with it. Hopefully the weekend will bring some improvement!
