Baby Bella Day 48

Isabella had a very exhausting day. The apnea and bradycardia happened quite frequently this morning and into the afternoon. If more than three episodes happen in one day the staff begins to get concerned. Needless to say they are monitoring her very closely right now for these drops in heart rate and poor oxygen absorption. We noticed in her chart that she had not been on her tummy in two days. As we have observed, she breaths and rests better when lying on her stomach. Before we left this afternoon we made sure that Esther would put Bella on her tummy at the next care time. This evening we were pleased to find her on her tummy and appearing much more comfortable.

Other than that there really isn't much to report. We continue trust God and pray that she is able to remain strong.

I want to thank Jessica Brit for this lovely message on Facebook:
Psalm 125:2 "As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forever more." May the medical machines, tubes, and drips that surround you and Isabella be a constant reminder that the Lord is surrounding you now and forever!
