If you need Bella or me, we will be at 1502 West Tower, Texas Children’s Hospital.
This morning the doctors decided that Bella was well enough to move “down to the floor.” Being a very efficient hospital, we just arrived – at 5:30 PM. So if you have been waiting for today’s post, that’s why. We have been waiting, like you, all day.Waiting and waiting
Bella continues to have the collapsed lung. They are giving her breathing treatments every four hours. She hates these. They are bursts of positive pressure that carries medicine to her lungs to help and open them up.
She is eating like a champ. Dr. Mott says this will really help us as eating is usually the last thing that babies master before going home. It is a pleasure to feed her now. She no longer sweats. She eats and looks at me. What a blessing! Dr. Salazaar says if these are the changes we have seen after two weeks, imagine what we’ll see in six months.
