Here is how it is going

Bob is in the hospital, on antibiotics. The main symptom of CDiff is the diarrhea. That may be TMI for some. He is on an oral antibiotic. Is still mostly refusing to eat, except for drinking gingerale and eating some fruit. I also learned that right now he is taking an opiate, for two reasons. The idea is that it will stop the pain from the intense stomach cramps. It also tends to constipate, so they hope the trips to the toilet will slow down too. He may be released today. If not, I will go see my sister and work at her house. I am beyond tired. Think I will take a twenty mnute nap before I go to work.

Rest every little bit you can. It's hard when people we love need care. I've been caring off and on for my adult son for the past 18 months, and I know it's really tough. You feel so helpless when you can't fix someone and make them better. Hang in there, Heather.
