Bella’s Week

IMG_2464We went to visit our GI doctor.  We have been having too many hard, distended tummies (and having a BM is a screaming affair) so we were hoping for some answers.  We got orders for a bunch of tests.  My poor baby – I hate that she knows what is coming.  I hate how she locks her wheels.  I hate that it takes so many grown adults to get blood.  I hate that she is terrified of x-rays.  Pretty much hate hospitals.  But still we are hoping for some answers.

After that trauma, we needed some fun:


Making owls from pine cones in Speech


Working hard on feeding (one day….)


OK, this just made me mad – how many clinics, doctors and nurses have been through her chart?  Oh, about a million.  And who notices that Bella is missing a Hep B vaccine?  The school nurse.  Really?  And yes, if you don’t get vaccinated by Monday, she can’t come to school.  (sorry but, really? her unprotected status from Heb B is going to become a problem on Monday, but not today or last Thursday?  No, I didn’t say any of that out loud, but yes, I obviously thought it)  So we had to go back to the doctor and get a shot.  And after Monday’s trauma that just wasn’t nice!


At the park for PT because it was so nice outside!


At the DARS Fall Festival.   Bella is funny – if she gets bored, she just takes off.  Love that she has that ability with her chair. Looking so intently at the ducks


She got a beautiful lunch and ate – the pickle!  I’ll take it!


Meeting the animals and riding a pony!

Watching the ipad on the stairs like Joy does.  Watching TV in a boat with Joy.

I remember first reading Bella's blog and seeing her confined to one room, unable to go out into the world like most kids. It is so heartwarming to see her at the park, at school, even just playing on the stairs. Awesome!
