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

Saturday, May 23, 2009


This morning Jason came up to the hospital and brought two very special visitors – his parents!  They got to meet Miss Bella for the first time.  :)  I’ll have to post the pictures later.

I ran around all morning doing my Saturday-pretend-I’m-the-Mom routine and then got to come up here and be with my girl.

Today Bella had a follow-up ultrasound.  It showed that she has some fluid building up in her abdomen - more abscess.  It is currently 3cm X 4cm.  So they are going to watch that and see if the antibiotics can fix it.  If not, they will have to drain it.  She has spiked a new fever this afternoon, despite her 3 antibiotics.  Her lasix is being decreased (not happy about that) and she will be getting another potassium bolus.  But other than that, she is awake, alert, and of course, beautiful!

I know abcess's can be a pain to get rid of. They should have left the drain in. I'm glad everything else is quiet. Hugs from me and Jax

I saw your story on Jaxson's blankets blog and wanted to let you know we are praying for your beautiful girl.
