We ordered Bella a Sleep Safe Bed and it arrived today! Wow – it’s big! This bed will last her for years and years. I am so grateful for it. This morning she demonstrated to me once again that she cannot be laid flat – her aspiration risk is just too great. I gave her three meds and flushed it while she was sitting up. She started retching. I looked and sure enough there was liquid in her mouth. How it gets all the way from her small intestine to her mouth astonishes me – that’s the wrong direction. I am grateful for this bed to keep her in that wonderful 33 degree angle.

Playing around in the bed. That is my 14 and 11 year olds laying in there with Bella watching TV. She definitely has some growing room! :)
