Back and Forth, Up and Down!
I make this post without permission from the blogmaster, but I feel that many of you have been looking for an update. Bela was discharged on Wed morning and we were so excited to be back home together. Yesterday we noticed some swelling along Bela's incision so Avery called the doctors. They asked us to immediately come in. So we spent the afternoon at the doctors office running all of the tests on our little Bela. 3 of the 4 doctors that looked at Bela said we needed to admit her to the hospital so they could watch her for a few days. Avery pled with one of the surgeons to let us watch it closely on our own and promised that if it got worse, we would bring her in. They also decided to go off any suplements for a few days and go back to just breast milk. Bela had another appointment this afternoon at the doctor's office and I received the call less than an hour ago that Bela has been readmitted to the hospital at least for the weekend. I can think of a lot of more desirable weekend getaways than St. Joes, maybe St. Thomas? So Bela and Avery will spend the next few nights under constant observation. I will leave all of the technical medical jargon to Avery because she is the family medical specialist. So the roller coaster goes on. I know that we are so blessed with great family, friends, etc, but this is no fun!
