Drowning in stool
Warning, this is a Mommy post and not a pretty one.
I have been turned into a professional stool sample taker. It´s all I do. When they see me walking up to the door of the lab we use, they start pulling out the cups.*
Moms are known for many things. Some Moms make cookies, some paint with their kids, many spend the day at the park. If my life continues like this, my kids will remember me for yelling 'No no, hold it a second longer! I need to get the cup!'
We are on borderline ridiculous people! There is nothing grosser than opening your fridge in the morning to grab the milk and getting an eyeful of the brown ugly. Seriously, there is nothing kosher about poo.
This is my last war on the giardia! I´m done!
Should we get a clean sample, I´m no longer giving my children water, taking them to the beach, or feeding them fruits and veggies. It´s Coke, processed foods, sitting on the couch, and nuggets all the way baby. Wait a second, I think I just figured out why we don´t have this problem in the states...
* (Fyi: In Brazil you go to private labs to get your tests done. You can also pick up any sample cups you need from there.)
