Lovely Bella is intubated and sleepy in the ICU. She had a difficult weekend, and had to have a catheterisation to address some difficulties with breathing.
Today, it was so nice to see her mum. She is such a calm and pleasant person and really good fun to be around. Thank God, the report for Bella was good, and the next step is waiting to extubate her. Please pray that she continues to improve.
Today our precious Bella was extubated, she is slowly recovering but we need your prayers because our princess has had high fever all day, the medical team did different tests to know what is happening with Bella and still we don’t know. For now her heart seems working very well and we believe in the healing power of our God. We pray for strength over her mother, who is doing a great job taking care of her daughter every minute as Bella sometimes moves a lot trying to take off her different drains.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7
When I went to greet Bella’s mother she seemed so full of peace, faith and assurance that everything was going to be fine, she was very happy that the moment she had been waiting for had finally arrived : her princess was having surgery!. It was a long wait approximately 7 hours, we were in the waiting room with her mom all the time, she showed us some pictures of her family, we were also talking with her family by phone and video call, we prayed together for wisdom for the medical team but we also prayed to thank God. Two of the doctors came out and told us that the surgery had been a success and that they had fixed everything that was in the wrong place, also, before she came out of surgery, they made an echo in which it indicated that everything was as expected, however for now , the most important thing is her recovery for the next 24 hours, she is stable and possibly be extubated tomorrow. Please continue to pray for this beautiful princess, that everything goes smoothly and she can return home soon with her lovely mother.
Finally we got the phone call that Bella could come to hospital for her surgery. Her mum waited so long for this day and was really happy to get this news. During the drive Bella was really cute and happy, having no idea that she would go in for surgery. She even started to babble and talk!
It took us some time until they got Bellas bed ready, but the mum was really patient and we had a good time together.
Please pray for the surgery that she will have tomorrow that the surgeons will have wisdom, that it won’t be too hard for the mother and that Bella will recover well afterwards.
