I just HAD to do it! HAD TO. Bella is determined to prove her age to the world by overdramatizing the already dramatic temper tantrums. Bella now has the mark of the beast on her Onsie! The staff was so taken by her temper that they were bringing other nurses in just to observe. I overheard one of the nurses thanking her maker for the end of her shift because of Bella. So what did I do? EVERYTHING in my power! I turned on Tangled (rotted her brain), gave her a sippie cup in bed (rotted her teeth) turned off the pulse ox (totally AMA) turned off the light, and left. Doesn't she look quaint? I promise that I won't make this a habit but for her sake, this needed to happen. Oh how I love this little squirt.
The Holliday season is here right along with the flu and RSV. Bella is on lockdown until the spring and we'd like to spend as much time with everyone as possible. Please get your flu shots if you haven't already and try to stay healthy for her sake and yours. If you plan to come over, or invite us over, look back at the past 72 hrs of your fabulous life. Any head colds, diarrhea, stomach aches, soar throats or coughs? How about complaints of ailments from anyone you've spent time with? Since August, Bella has already been admitted twice for RSV and once for a stomach virus. I'd like to think that her feisty personality and newly acquired 40% weight status would boost her immune system,unfortunately, that isn't the case. We love you all dearly and we appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers on her behalf.
