Little Bella has captured the hearts of our family and everyone that meets her. We want to share her story with all.

Miss Bella was extubated at 2:15pm today.  She can now vocally tell us when she is upset.

Everything went well, and she now only has a nasal cannula to give her the NO.    The NO was set at 3 this morning with the ventilator still attached.  It is now at 5 because they don't know how much she will actually get with the nasal cannula.  She should be getting about same as before.

Congrats Bella on getting the breathing tube removed.



She looks tired here but is doing great, and we can see her beautiful face.
