To give you an update…

If you’re new here- welcome! If you’re one of my regulars- welcome back!
I thought I’d give you all an update on my health.
For those of you that don’t know, I have been battling C Diff since July 22, of this year. I’ve been on several medications (7-11 daily) off and on, have had a CT scan, stays in the hospital and even a colonoscopy. All at 26.
I went off the Vanco (supposedly the miracle drug that cures this nasty super bug) the Thursday before last, and as of yesterday morning, I was doing great. But things took a turn for the worse (not nearly as bad as before mind you) and the C Diff is back. I’ve got the same symptoms, just not nearly as severe (at the moment). As soon as the symptoms emerged (within moments) I was back on the Vanco. Soooo, that’s where we are for the moment. Florastor and Vanco combo. Hopefully this will be my last round, but we’ll see!
Wish me luck, and please pray for my sick colon!
