My first post!

Ok - I decided to start a blog for Jack. We have a carepage but I try to use it only when he is ill and update when needed when he is healthy.

So let's see, As of right now Jack is healthy. He hasn't had any major illnesses for a year now. Last year at this time he battled C-diff (Chlostridium Difficile)twice. This was a horrible experience. There were times I was not sure he was going to pull through. The stress of being "on-call" for possible surgery and other handful of potential dangers was a lot to handle. Jack was in Rainbow Babies for 3 weeks each time. He was the worst pediatric case they had ever seen. Not something you really strive for.

A little about C-diff. It was be named one of the new super bugs. It is right up there with MRSA. Often times it is picked up in hospitals after a lengthy stay or after surgery. Jack had neither of these so were are not sure where he picked it up. A trip to the supermarket and touching all of the carts could have easily done it.
