Figuratively speaking, a lot of guys take a lot of shit from their wives. Jerry Grant, 33, is literally taking shit from his wife -- and it will likely save his life.
Grant's had some poop problems for the past several months -- bleeding rectally, and what not -- and the procedure that will likely "save his life" involves taking his wife's feces and transplanting it into his body.
Grant suffers from a condition called clostridium difficile, an intestinal disease that causes severe diarrhea. Potentially, it can be fatal.
