A setback. In Bella’s secretions from her tube, they found Group A strep, but they have just come back and said she also had a virus growing in there. So…her surgery is being postponed. I don’t know to when. She has to get better. She has to be strong before that massive undertaking.
Today her breathing is more labored, and she continues to cough a horrible croupy cough. The cough is good. It means she is moving stuff out. But I don’t like her breathing.
Jason keeps telling me the good news is that she is where she needs to be. They will take the best care possible of her here. Yesterday I had finally gotten consistent child care set up for the girls, but it unfortunately had an end date of March 1st. We have a friend that is an RN and is between contracts, so this worked out perfectly. She is going to watch the kids. The girls, especially Joy, will have a consistent routine and face. I figured that was long enough – it included a 12 day recovery period. That was when she was scheduled for Wednesday. Everything will work out somehow. They are talking about a couple of week delay. Sigh. Jason sent this to me:
We love you Bella. Get better soon!
