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

Monday Updates:

Eyes – Bella’s eyes are no longer crazy.  She can track her ladybug toy again!  Thank goodness!

Blood – hemoglobin and albumin down again, getting another transfusion

Breathing – PEEP up to 10, FIO2 up to 75% – ugh.  Mild retractions.  We haven’t seen these since…..I don’t know.  It’s been months.

Weight – Down to 5.1 kg (11.2 lb), trying to add more calories and protein to her diet

OT – she did well.  She allowed the OT to put her finger in Bella’s mouth.  Maybe, just maybe she hasn’t gone all the way to an oral aversion.  Yea!

Hair – cute and up in a pony on the top of her head :)
