Comments / pictures

He began teething and had the usual loose stools, contracted pneumonia, (for which we administered a strong injectible antibiotic in an attempt to save him); but the loose stools masked the onset of gastro enteritis that destroyed the lining of his gut. When he began passing blood in his stools, we resorted to oral Sulphadimidine but it was too late.
