5 days into the vanc and he's doing tons better. his poops are even starting to get more dense and form a little pile. we just gotta figure out how to kick this infection for good. we have a visit scheduled with the surgeon on wednesday and i'll just call the GI after that and let her know whats going on. she's reasonable and i'm sure it's not the first time someone has gone against her suggested course of action. i'll just blame it on that funny mother's instinct thing.
i don't know about the hospital's protocol for checking c-diff toxins, but i know it is faulty because he was in the hospital with full blown terrible c-diff and got false negatives.
thanks for the support, ya'll.
