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

Oops! and So Sorry!

I am such a wonderful Mom – not!

march 28 GJ 001

We were transferring her from her wheelchair to her bed.  Somehow I didn’t see that her extension tube sitting out.  It must have caught on something.  I am so sorry babe!  I pulled out her GJ button – completely. We had a spare g-button, thankfully,  so I slipped that in to keep her stoma open.  Then we called the doctor.  We are holding her feeds till tomorrow when we can hopefully get an appointment in IR and get a new GJ.  We  went through and figured out which were her essential meds and we’ll sit her up in her wheelchair for at least a half hour to help prevent any aspirations.  Sorry love.  I know where we’ll be spending tomorrow.  :(

march 28 GJ 002Funny thing – my 11 year old walks in, totally oblivious to the crisis that had happened (Are they that common around here that we don’t even notice them anymore?).  She sees the GJ on the table – and asks, “Why is Bella’s tube that she eats with on the table?”  :)

Right now the kids are experimenting with the tube to see how it really works – the things my kids know! (shaking my head)
