Update on Carmen: We reduced Carmen’s daily caloric intake from 600 to 500 so hopefully she will stop the rapid weight gain. She still has chronic diarrhea. We are going to see about getting her retested for C-diff (Clostridium Difficile Colitis), an infection that could have been caused by antibiotic use. We are looking into switching from Nutren Jr. to Neocate formula. Something is causing all this diarrhea. We just cannot figure out what that is. She has a low grade fever off and on. Yesterday she had several passing out episodes.
My mom lives about 2 hours north of Houston. Here are a couple of pictures from the day after Hurricane Ike. My aunt Jerry Sue is on the left with the umbrella blowing everywhere! My mom has the red/white umbrella.
