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

She is all done.  Both surgeons have talked with us.  Everything went well.  She lost her PICC line, though.  Her leg was getting all marbled, so they are going to take out the PICC and we’ll see what kind of access she has when she gets back.  So, about another hour till we see her.

Interesting about that leg.  Dr. Salazaar, her heart surgeon, told the CVICU not to place a line in her groin.  He said that he has seen kids with DS gets those lines and their leg goes blue.  Their anatomy is just slightly different in that way.  Everyone that I have told that to has said, “No, that’s not true.”  And now here we are.  Oh well.  Learn something new every day.

I can’t wait to see her beautiful face!!
