Dad here. A hard night is probably not a proper title and Avery doesn't really want to re-live last night so I am going to attempt to explain the constant fragile state of little Bela's life. At about 11:00 pm Bela's O2 sats were dropping into the 60s and suddenly her heart rate dropped below the 100s, so Nicole, Bela's nurse began assessing. Within 30 seconds her sats dropped into the 20s and heart rate in the low 40s as well. By then, things were in crisis mode, doctors and nurses scrambling all over. Bela's nurse was manually giving Bela breathes as she was fighting against her respirator. Bela was completely Blue and lifeless. As Avery cried explaining this all to me over the phone just after happening, she said that she thought that was it and that Bela was gone. One of the ICU docs was standing over Bela prepared to shock her heart and bring her back, but just as she was about to shock, Bela's heart rate began to rise and her sats as well. Within another five minutes they were able to stablize Bela. They are still not sure what caused her crash, but think there must have been some flem or fluid lodged in her breathing tube.
She has remained pretty calm and stable since then. Once again we count our many blessings and cherish every moment with our sweet little Bela.
