Day 14 of Feeling Crappy.
Reed has been diagnosed with Pseudomembranous Colitis caused by Clostridium Difficile. He is taking Metronidazole. What a mouthful!
Basically, the good bacteria in the colon have been overthrown by the bad. Presumably with the help of the antibiotic that he was on for his Strep Throat. He has diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain. He is exhausted and basically feels lousy. We have been pretty agressive in trying to find out what is wrong with him because he is SO sick! We just found all this out today. We still don't have the results of the ultrasound, but probably will in a couple of days. Hopefully he will be starting to feel better by then.
