Do I still need to pay tuition when my son was injured at daycare?

I took my kids to daycare as usual on monday morning and by 4.23 PM I was called to come take my soon home because he had diarrhea. I was there by 5.30 PM and took him home. However, as I was giving him a bath that evening I noticed a bruise underneath his right eye. It was not there in the morning when I took him to school, and I wasn't even told that he had fallen or anything. Out of force of habit I take pictures of my kids before I drop them off so I have pictures to prove the bruise wasn't there in the morning and there at night. Also, I was told that 10 kids were sent home the same day for diarrhea. My son's stool was blue and I inquired what he had eaten and was told there was a birthday party and he had cake, when I further asked for his complete menu I was given a written version in which the PM snack was cake, no mention of any birthday party cake. I am confused at this point. I am trying to decide if to pull my kids out but I was given a subtle threat that I would have to pay for the full week even though my kids were out all week and would also have to pay 50% of 2 weeks tuition. I do not want to claim anything, but I do not feel like I should have to pay anything considering that my son was very ill of which I think that cake was probably contaminated, plus his fall. I have already covered medical bills why do i have to be made to pay the daycare for their negligence in my opinion.
