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

Bella’s Week

Hanging out with the family – eating her toes and showing us how flexible she is!IMG_3857IMG_3858

Bella sees it – Bella does it….Oh, you are finally letting me hold one of these, well…let me just send a few texts real quick.

And I think I can totally do this myself, thank you nurse.IMG_3888IMG_3887

Water in my tray?  OK.  How fun!

And we said good-bye to Miss Earsel.  How we will miss you, Miss Earsel.  She has been with us almost from the beginning.  We wish you all the best!!IMG_3895

Wednesday Bella decided we needed a trip downtown.  Two chest x-rays and three vials of blood later, the doctor still doesn’t know what is up with you Bell.  I guess you just like breathing at 70 – 85 breathes per minute with retractions on the vent.  That’s fine.  We’ll just watch you even more!

The only thing that came back from her blood work was an elevated platelet count – which we always get.  That may be caused by chronic inflammation.  I am so hoping for answers and ideas from Physical Medicine and Rehab this coming Friday.  Hoping we can figure out what your legs are doing or why they aren’t doing what they are supposed to be doing.  Fingers crossed for a good week!

Oh how our kids make us think! No wonder we are so smart! Jax has been off the last two days. Sats are baseline, but his color is terrible! I'm thinking a trip to the ped is in order. Probably with lots of bloodwork for us too!

Love to you sweet Bella.
