Thanks to you diehards who even get on here over the weekend!

Dressing update: wound care took 1 hour today! We're starting to get the hang of it, and our neighbor Becky has volunteered to assist since our home care nurses couldn't staff Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. It's all good; I'd rather have Becky by our side than any stranger at such a time. NO new blisters today. Although, we figured out that Bella is doing a number on her self. We uncovered a wound on her left shin that we couldn't figure out where it came from. We thought maybe it was from our hands lifting her legs during diaper changes, but turns out, she kicks herself in the left shin with the inside of her right foot! Tomorrow, I will add shin guards.

Reflux update: Whatever it is Bella has, the formula didn't completely do the trick. When she either passes gas or poops, she screams in pain. That's really a drag, because she's pretty gassy. Really don't know what to do till Monday about that one. Also, she kicks and hits like a street fighter. She HATES diaper changes (kicks and screams till she's purple, and tonight was inconsolable even after a fresh diaper and a bottle. Is that colic? Ali was a saint in comparison!

Lastly, please go to to see a tender video of Bella. It is her inner essence revealing itself amid the tumult her body is going through.

We love you,

Tim & Ang

P.S. Please purchase Bella's Song available above! Do it now! :)

    Oh, she is beautiful and yummy. (And yes, that is colic. Sounds just like Jack as a baby.) My mom has her church community sending prayers!

    One day at a time, you two! 1 hour is amazing -remember where you were a week ago? When our Kevin was in NICU there was that moment we were forced to step back and realize "it" was out of our control. Bella is entrusted to you and you are doing all her Heavenly Father can ask, but she's His and He will show you all the way - continue to let Him lead. Love you all!
