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

I will spare everyone a picture of her draining wound.  Let’s just say it’s gross and leave it there.

She is alert when she is awake.  Her eyes seem to be slowing down to me  - yeah!  Her hemoglobin was down to 7.4, so she is getting more blood.

Infection doctors and pedi. surgery are following her tummy wound.  They have her on three really strong antibiotics.  She will have a follow-up ultrasound and x-ray tomorrow.

The hope is for a nice, boring day full of draining and healing.
