Bell’s Week

Tuesday morning brought labs – lots of them.   Poor thing.  Three adults to make it happen.  I just love the shades babe!


Happier times – swinging!


Music therapy


OT – coloring


DSC00567Friday morning Jessi, Alex, Bella, and I left the house at 5:45AM to make it downtown for an abdominal ultrasound.  Here she is waiting and waiting for her turn.  The poor girl started freaking out the moment I wheeled her into the exam room and when those blue gloves came out, total freak out.  Despite all of my reassurance that they was a no owey day, she cried and panicked through the whole thing.   

I figure between the kid’s prenatal ultrasounds and all of Bella’s I’m pretty good at reading ultrasounds.  I asked the ultrasound tech if the gray blubs inside the gallbladder where the gall stones.  She told me, “I can’t tell you anything.”  That’s right.  But it was funny at the end of the exam she said, “OK, let’s turn her over so we can see if the stones move.”  OK, I get it.  Read between the lines Mom. I don’t expect to hear anything until Tuesday with Memorial Day.  So we’ll see.  I did find out that she has a family history of gall bladder problems.  What invaluable information!  We’ll see what GI says.



Sunday morning Bella and Joy watching you tubes videos.

She is doing awesome.  I have tried a couple of naps off the vent – and she does really well. Oxygen she still needs, but her heart rate is going down, which is great.  Her respiration rate is high, but I guess that’ll just be her baseline.  She’s anywhere from 40s to 80s.  Pulmonary is on Thursday.  Interested to see his plan for the summer.

I must demand an ultrasound of Addy's gallbladder! The more I read the more I think that's what's wrong with her!
