Allergies are still alive and well here in Houston. But the pollen count isn’t nearly as high – thank goodness. Bella isn’t totally free from the need for extra oxygen and xopenex, but she was able to get off the vent for one brief hour this week – a step in the right direction.
She watches us eat and she is so curious. She has been cleared for therapeutic tastes, but not for eating. She loved tasting the orange droplets I was squeezing from my orange.
My Grandfather got to meet Miss Arabella. I was afraid that he would be overwhelmed, but he wasn’t. He is a sweet man.
She is just too cute!
We tried something different this week. For the nights that a nurse doesn’t show up, we set up an old crib in our room. It’s much nicer than sitting up all night in a chair in her room. :)
I gave her a bath this morning in the sink and she splashed all on her own! She is growing up and doing so many baby things – I love it!! My hand is there to protect her from any water splashing up into her trach.
