Life with Bella

Results from her sedated ECHO were amazing!  Her valves are leaking, we will continue to monitor.  But her pulmonary pressures are NORMAL!  Amazing – that is a miracle!  I am so grateful!

Sweet Bella was sent home on Monday.  She kept crying and they were afraid she was in pain from her surgery.  As soon as I saw her and heard her cry I knew what was wrong – poor thing was constipated!  It’s a chronic problem for Bell, add in anesthesia and you have a recipe for disaster.  I had increased her laxative, but evidently not enough!  As soon as I got her home, we got her cleared out and she was happy as a lark.  I texted this pic to her teacher who couldn’t believe it was the same kid they had just sent home! :)

Signing Time Christmas and a Christmas card from Miss Rachel came for Bella!  So thrilling!

OT eval  She loved the swing!  I loved the circle she drew!  I’ve been trying to convince school that she can produce a circle, she just likes to hide her abilities! Ornery girl!
