I worked last night so I am completely exhausted, but it is Sam's first Christmas!!! We opened presents here, then we went to my mom's for brunch and Matt's aunts for dinner. It was very nice, but I was nervous because sick people came to Matt's aunts house and I just can't stand for Sam to get sick again. Hopefully I am just being paranoid and he won't get sick.

My poor boy just spent two days in the hospital. On the upside of things we have finally figured out what is wrong with him, the down side is we are in the hospital now to treat him. What he has is colitis, caused by C-diff, which the doctore now believes he got while he was in the NICU. Everyone that had contact with him had to get tested to see if any of us were the carriers. I could have never forgiven myself if I was the reason he got sick. We were all negative, so he must have gotten it in the NICU. He is already feeling better as you can see in this picture with Daddy. Now we have to have antibiotics for 10 days. I just hope that he is better for Christmas, and that he has no more stomach pain.

This poor baby is still sick. He can't seem to get better. He now isn't eating, and is just plain miserable. I feel like I failed him by allowing him to be around sick people on thanksgiving. We went back to the doctor, and she isn't quite sure what is going on, except to say taht some adult infections just wreak havic on babies, especially preemies. He has diarrhea and vomiting now as well. He is not losing weight so that is good, but I just feel so bad for him. He is vomiting quite often, and has 6 plus poops a day.
