So we'll have a party, a little one, but a party nonetheless and we'll keep hoping and praying for her continued strength.

It's back. But never fear, Dr. Blackburn says as the C Diff toxins leave her body it can sluff off in the stool and give us a positive reading. That doesn't necessarily mean it's still acute. She really doesn't have the other awful symptoms we had seen over the last several weeks so we are hopeful that her body is fighting it and that it is on it's way out. She is still on the lactobacillus to try and encourage the growth of good bacterias and we are limiting her intake of dairy products as they apparently don't help foster the growth of the rough lining she needs back in her intestines. So there's an update. We don't want to put her on the Vancomycin unless we know she absolutely needs it. I have learned a lot about antibiotics and how serious their side effects can be. You certainly don't want to be taking them unless you truly need to.
