CT scan

Bela's had a busier day...lots of nurses doing lots of things for her. She is still doing wonderfully. THey've taken out both her IV's on her feet and put in one on her arm. Two for one! She's currently getting a CT Scan..they just came to take her away for it. If all looks good on her scan they can possibly get the tube out still today, or more likely tomorrow. I don't like to get my hopes up when they say one thing and it turns out to be another, but we sure hope her scan looks good and that it will be out sooner than later. A lot depends on that tube coming out. She can start being taken off a few of the meds, and she can start trying to feed orally. And I can finally hear her sweet voice! Plus she will be a lot more comfortable. Her sedation med is slowly being reduced and so she has been a little more squirmy today. It's nice to see movement and know that she is an alive and well baby under all the medications. Bela is truly amazing.. she is a miracle. Every single day and moment I have to spend with my family is so sweet and meaningful. Life is so precious. The power of prayer is real and it has touched our lives and certainly Bela's.

I'm so glad that today was another good day with Bela. She is an amazing little girl, a real miracle! That will be the greatest to be able to hear her make some sounds!
I feel so bad that Benson didn't want to stay and play today. You looked so emotionally drained and tired. I cried after you left the house today just imaging all of the emotional stress that you must be going through on a day to day basis. You're an amazing mom to both Benson and Bela, they are so blessed to have you as their mommy! They couldn't possibly receive anymore love from someone else than they do from you. Our doors always open if Benson feels like a play date later on this week!
