Wahoo! And she stayed out of the hospital the whole time! Way to go my little strong one.
On Saturday we had our family picture finally taken. Jason’s sister is a photographer. Bella can’t go out and about, so the studio came to her. Marissa brought her big lights and background and we were able to finally have a complete Turpin family picture taken – yeah! Thank you Marissa! I can’t wait to see how they all turned out.
Sunday we had no day nurse. She called in sick. So we had the day (and Bella) to ourselves! We are very thankful for the nurses and their care. Jason and I are trained to take care of this little bug, but it is comforting to have a nurse here 24/7. On the other hand, we have to admit that occasionally it’s wonderful to just be the 8 of us – no extra strangers sitting around listening to every word we say and asking questions. We could not do this without them – make no mistake. We need them. Bella needs them. But for those 12 hours, we were a family – and it was wonderful!
Here is a little Bella for everyone to enjoy:
Notice her little hands working on the knots in her trach ties
