Bella has been recovering nicely from her most recent surgery two weeks ago. Her spirits are high and her smile is bright. She just got her new electric wheelchair and is enjoying being able to move by herself, which is making it hard for us to keep up with her now! She enjoys going on rounds helping out her team of nurses, following them around and hanging out in the nurses’ station. She even has her very own ID badge and stethoscope. Thanks to her hard work and determination in her daily PT (physical therapy) and OT (occupational therapy), she will soon be healthy enough to be transferred to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.
At the time of our last entry, Bella had just been re-admitted to Children's Hospital with a bad case of pneumonia. She is still recovering from this bout, but thanks to her strong will combined with the love and support of her family and friends, she has finally been discharged from the ICU and is currently recuperating in the hospital's CCS (Coordinated Care Services).
