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

Sunday Update

The surgeon came by and looked at the incision area.  they took some Q-tips and probed the areas that were left open for drainage and did find some “wash” still there but no puss or abscess.  The Surgeon did say that it is too quick for a full abscess to form like the doctors thought was developing and that in the last surgery they did use a lot of “wash” to clean the area out.  they feel that the fluid in the area is just excess “wash” and that the area did not look that bad.  They are going to keep an eye on it but will let the area continue to drain and let the myriad of antibiotics take their course. 

So at this time there is not anymore emergency surgeries.

Just hoping that Bella and her fragile little body will cooperate with us this time.

Hang in there Bella Bug.

Hang in there sweet baby. I know it seems like their bodies can't take anymore, I remember thinking that with Jax. But they are stronger than we could ever be and their bodies can take a surprising amount of stress. She will get better soon.
