Health--C Difficile

Has anyone every heard of the bacteria called "C Difficile"? Apparently many hospital staff across Canada are being warned to beware of this particular type of bacteria, after several reports of death, and numerous deaths from it over the past year. It is a difficult strain of bacteria to diagnose, and can result in death if not treated properly. It's worse than a nasty flu virus. How many of you have ever heard of this or known someone who came down with it?

I just learned a few minutes ago that a dear friend in Hagersville, Ontario is on life support now due to this virus. She has kidney failure. Please pray for Wendy M. and her family and her doctors. Celise S.
