My mom

My mom has been really ill for over a month. Trips and hours in the ER. And this last week felt even more critical, lots of time in ER ... but I think we finally figured out what the latest culprit making her so sick ... C.dff ... the result of months taking really high doses of antibiotics battling Diverticulitis. I saw my mom deteriorate in one month and that is really scary! But now that we know, I am keeping my fingers crossed that something can be done to relieve her pain.

Thank you Terry! I am just so glad we figured it out. The frustrating part is NOT knowing what you are dealing with. Will pass on your best wishes. xoxo

Hi Kim, I have a friend that was diagnosed with this a few years back. She was given mega doses of a high powered probiotics and another medication. She finally turned the corner. It IS scary and debilitating. I'm wishing your dear mother a speedy recovery. My best to you both. Jan
