Your mommy hasa bacterial infection
called C. diff.
It's very contagious.
A bacterial infection?In her stomach?
All of us have trillionsof microscopic critters
that grow onand inside our bodies,
just like your mom.
There's tiny creatureswhich live in your mom's skin,
on her eyelashes,in her vagina.
But the good bacteriain your mommy's tummy
are being overrunby bad bacteria.
We can't use antibioticsbecause that will
kill all the goodbacteria, too.
So, what canyou do for her?
We need to takea healthy person's microbiome
and start to grow itinside your mother.
We do this witha fecal transplant.
We'll get a donor's feces,mix it with water,
and put it upyour mom's anus.
Your mom is tough, kids.
We're gonna dothe very best we can.
Try not to worry.
Ike, if mom lives...
we can't let anyoneever know about this.
