We have had several rough days lately, my poor husband has been working, and just getting reports from me. He was getting more and more worried and then today decided that he couldn’t wait for his day with his Bella Bug, he needed to come and see her today. Evidently, it was exactly what our little one needed. She has been much more stable the last few hours. They have been able to wean on the O2 down to 80% – so at least we have some wiggle room back. She is sating in the upper 80s. Jason was able to talk to the doctors himself and not get everything through a filter (me). He is feeling better. Bella is behaving better. And I had someone to eat lunch with - Yeah!
The gram rods that grew in Bella’s tube were able to be identified and she is on the correct antibiotics for that. The attending feels that with a bacterial infection, the kids do worse for 3 days and then start doing better. Today is day 3, so we are ready to start doing better.
I have to thank everyone for your encouragement. We so appreciate it! Jason told me today that he would have given up all hope if it wasn’t for y’all that post and tell us that you were here and now you are home. Thank you. You offer us hope – and we are grateful!
