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

Not where we want to be

Summary of a very long day:

  • new GJ
  • visited Special Needs Clinic again to re-assess our plan, consult with pulmo
  • admitted to PCU for 30 minutes, they panic over low BP and can’t get access
  • admitted to PICU
  • one central line
  • one A line
  • one million needle marks all over my baby
  • one blood transfusion
  • every test under the sun
  • one guilt ridden Mama, crying
  • one little girl being paralyzed and sedated and back on the hospital vent
  • consults with pulm and critical med
  • some theories forming
  • kidneys not working really well
  • A line pulled out
  • lots of prayers

Hoping tomorrow brings more hope.

So not what I wanted to find as I was ending my evening and checking in on our little buddies.

Lots of prayers for Miss Bella and for you,her worried momma.And Shelly,please for me,let go of the guilt.You are,hands down, one of the very best momma's I know.

My name is Sarah said...

This is Joyce. Oh Shelley I have been slacking in my reading lately and so I missed the last few days leading up to this. I'm telling you this Miss Bella just seems to be following the same path Miss Sarah always chose. We need to find a different yellow brick road for these girls to march down. Praying they will get a plan all figured out soon. I agree with Heather, the guilt, although mighty needs to go by the wayside. Sending you love and hugs..

Quilt is also counterproductive, Shelly. It paralyzes the person that has it and does nothing for the situation. Bella is just trying to help with the nurse situation. Call me if you need something. Is Becca overseeing the house?

Oh Shelly, I'm so worried now! And please don't feel guilty. You are the one I trust the most with Jax and right now I'm seriously leaning to you to take him while we are gone! Some things you can't see on the surface!

I will be praying for your sweet girl. It's always so difficult have to watch the hospital do procedures and lab draws on our little ones. Hang in there!
