The e. coli this child has is not the "bad" e. coli ... so as soon as his bowels return to normal he's able to come back - no need for follow up samples.

There are different strains but none are good to my knowledge; maybe less deadly. The strain that went thru here recently, kept numerous kids in the hospital for weeks & a few almost died from kidney issues
