Customer Question

My friend, who is 86 and very frail, hardly eats anything at all as she is suffering from terrible diarrhea. She has contacted her doctor and has given a sample. She is waiting for an answer. This morning she woke up at 3 o'clock with it and it was like water. This has been going on since January and she has lost six pounds so far. She is constantly tired and sleeps a lot. She lives on her own, hear son and daughter live quite some way from her.
