    My mother went into the ER as the result of a UTI. The elderly woman next to her was coughing and hacking and looked like she was in a coma. We begged the nurse to let us help mother get a urine sample. The nurse refused, saying the doctor had ordered her to be catheterized. Mother was released that day but soon had non-stop diarrhea, and a trip to the doctor revealed she had contracted C. difficile. She was placed on rounds of antibiotics and was no better after a month but rapidly deteriorating. We read about fecal transplants and asked her doctor to help us, He refused, saying he wouldn’t touch that with a ten foot pole. We were certain Mom would die soon, so we did several fecal transplants ourselves and her bowel movements were better than they had ever been. Mother believed that the Lord used the transplants to save her life and she was with us years longer before she went Home to heaven.
