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

Saturday Update

Well rounds have now been done.  The doctor came in and said she looks like she is doing wonderful.  (Same thing the surgeon said earlier this morning).  Bella is now on 1/4 liter of oxygen and they have stopped the potassium.

They are trying to get everything in order so she can have oxygen when she goes home, but we are thinking she may wean herself off of it by then.

The doctors say she is progressing really well and we should be able to go home in a couple of days. (I asked what a couple of days means, and they said Monday or Tuesday). 

I also know this is all dependant on 2 unpredictable things:

1.  Bella's cooperation.

2.  The Attending Physician of the moment.

With that said,  we are doing great and looking to be home quickly!!!

That is wonderful news! She really is getting better exponentially! The girls were really missing Shelly on Friday, and I was so excited to read that she might be home by the end of the week! If it is sooner, then the girls will be REALLY excited! I am SO happy for your family that you were able to get this surgery done, and one day when you look back, this sacrifice will look like a grain of sand in the ocean of time! You will be comforting other mother's with your experiences, and this will all be a distant memory! I sure love you all, and can't wait to see that baby when she is healthy enough!
