C Diff, Yuck!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 9:33 pm

For some reason when I hear the word “C Diff” I think of Calculus.  Differential equations, maybe?  I don’t know.  I’m weird.

Brock has c diff.  It’s a bacteria that causes HORRIBLE diarrhea and can lead to other intestinal disease.  I’d always been told by nurses that if Brock had c diff, we’d know it because the smell is so horrible.  They weren’t kidding.

It was diagnosed on Friday so he’s had 1 full day of Flagyl but the symptoms aren’t better yet.  Praying his yucky diapers get better soon!  Pray also, that he doesn’t become dehydrated.

The Radiothon went really well!  Thanks to everyone who listened, and double thanks to everyone who called in to donate to Children’s Miracle Network.


  1. BUMMER!!! I pray that meds work and that Brock will be rid of that terrible stuff SOON!!!

    We have added a new link (It is right about the prayer requests) on the site for posting your own prayer request. It is great if you need us to pray and don’t have time to update your site.

  3. Make sure he gets a probiotic–yogurt works fine for most folks–while he’s on the flagyl and for a bit when he’s off. Don’t know how easy this will be, the way he (doesn’t) eat(s). I promise it makes a HUGE difference in how fast he’ll get over it.

    God bless you all.

  4. Praying the medicine will do its job and clean out all evidence of the c-diff. May the LORD JESUS give him and you strength and keep the smell at bay (wink). 🙂

  6. J and V,
    I am so sorry to hear that Brock has C-Diff. I pray that he will respond to the meds and be free of this yucky illness. Prayers continue to go up for each of you.
