My poor little Max has been having some diarrhea. He is pooping constantly and now has a sore bum. I called the nurse and she gave me some advice to give pedialyte and then to give soy formula until his stool went back to normal.
Today he had a lot of mucus in his poop and the nurse said to call if this happened. I called and they told me to come in with the diaper.
They took a sample and did a little test and Max has a virus. The good thing is he seems to be doing just fine. No fever or vomiting. They said that the virus needs to run it's course for about 7 to 10 days. Max is still able to eat just fine. He had no problem drinking the pedialyte and soy fomula.
They want to be sure that it's not bacterial so I get to scoop poop. I have to scoop his poop into all these different vials over the next 3 days and then take them all to the lab.
