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

Friday

Lizzy is my companion today.june 5th 005 june 5th 006

Our trach class is completed.  More and more items are getting checked off from our Discharge To-do List.  I just wish that Bella would sign off on the plan.  :)

imageTuesday the vendor is coming to help us order a Kid Kart.   It is a stroller and a wheelchair combined.  There is a place for the ventilator and the oxygen tank.  Plus it will have the trunk and head support she’ll need.

She’s had a pretty good day.  No major desats or bradies.  Not too tachy.  I was feeling pretty good until the doc says that she is a critically ill child who would be in ICU if she was anywhere but here.  (He was talking to a PA, not me.)  Oh well.

Her tummy is a little distended.  We checked her residuals (what’s left in her belly) and it was way too much and looked like straight milk.  So her feedings were stopped for a while.  We re-checked and she had resumed digesting – good.  So her feeds have resumed and they will watch it closely.  Hopefully nothing.

Here’s hoping for a nice, quiet weekend!
