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

Monday Morning

Bella slept most of the morning.  She was doing well on 2 liters of oxygen.  She woke up and we had to turned it back to 3 liters.  I am really looking forward to the CT scan.  We have to be fit in, so we are still waiting.

Despite her O2 stats of 89, Bella is comfortable.  Here she is talking to me:  She gets distracted by the camera and then by a noise off to the side.

We got a picture of Bella’s Easter outfit, but not her cute dress.  She has bunnies on her feet and a cotton tail on her bum.april 13 004 april 13 003 april 13 002

She was originally scheduled for her ECI eval today, but we missed that one being in the hospital.  Last night a PT came and evaluated her.  She ordered for PT three times a week asPt april 13 001 long as we are here.  That started today.  This is Bella receiving her first ever PT!  She does alright sitting up with support.  She loves laying on her side – she’s been doing that since the NICU.  She is good about bringing her hands to the midline when she is on her side, but otherwise, not so much.  She has bad head lag, but her sternal restrictions are lifted tomorrow since tomorrow is 6 weeks post-op.  (Can you believe it?)
