Daily Baths

There's NOTHING like the feeling after a bath.
I love the way that Ben looks and smells.
Today was one of those days that warranted such an activity.
You see...Ben has chronic diarrhea.
He's had it since Utah when he got sick.
I blame it on all those antibiotics.
The problem?
It's been 2 1/2 weeks since he stopped his antibiotics now.
I'm waiting for his normal bowel schedule to return.
I debated whether or not I should
document said events with pictures.
I figured you would appreciate me for that.
It's comparable to a nuclear explosion,
and it happens on a daily basis.
I'm beginning to wonder if it's Ben's way of asking for a bath.
I've told him there are better ways.

Poor Benji. Not a pleasant situation. He might have C. Diff which needs a special medication to get rid of it, and the diarrhea probably is from the many antibiotics he has had. I'd call the pediatrician regarding that because he may need to be on Flagyl or something like that.

I'm feeling the need to take a bath.

love when kids are fresh out of the bath....nothing better!
Ben is probably rolling his eyes at you for discussing his BM's on the blog :)
might I say, his hair looks very nice!

Poor kid, Junior dealt with that after his last hospital visit. We started probiotics and that has helped a lot.
