Laura, I've been fortunate enough to never have C Diff. I'm just so sorry Hailey is having to go through this. Do get her on some probiotics - I think some of our parents use Culturelle for their children - to replace the C. Diff with good bacteria.
I know it's especially hard to hear her blaming herself. You can only reassure her that she's a good girl and didn't do anything to cause this. Sometimes, for reasons even grown-ups don't understand, bad things happen to good people. Talk to her about
good things she's done - being gentle with a younger child, being nice to an animal, bringing you a little gift.
And take care of yourself, too. Sending healing thoughts Hailey's way.
