Hospitalization Update Day 2, 1:30pm

I just spoke with the GI doctor. He seemed really confident we can overcome C.Diff. His suggestion is to go on Vancomycin 4x's daily for the first month, 3x's daily for the second month, 2x's daily for the next month and 1x daily for the last month. It's a lot of work on our end but it will be well worth it.

However, Bennett should see dramatic improvement fairly quickly. He wants us to have Bennett's stool checked next Wednesday. If we do not see improvements in his C.Diff and if do not get a negative stool specimen, we are going to go forward with a Stool Transplant (seriously!) Let's hope it doesn't come to that but at least we already know the next step.
