I just wanted to let you all know that Bella's heart stopped yesterday afternoon and she went to live with our Heavenly Father and elder brother, Jesus Christ. We are all shocked and saddened by the loss of sweet Bella. I ask that you please take a moment from your day to visit Bella's blog and leave a message for her family. We have come close to loosing Daylon a few times, and I was beside myself. I can only imagine what her poor family is suffering right now. We can all rest a little knowing that Bella is finally free of EB and all the pain that she has had to endure in her earthly life. We love you, Bella! Until we meet again!
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*Daylon has had a good weekend. We have witness the benefits of your prayers in our lives once again.
-On Tuesday I posted that Daylon's post stroke issues were really concerning us and that his personality wasn't improving the way we'd hoped
-On Wednesday we united in special prayers for Daylon, with an emphasis on his kidneys
-On Thursday...no joke...Daylon woke up happy and smiled and played all day. We were thrilled with the happy change of events, but honestly wrote it off as a fluke day.

Daylon's CSA level was upped again on Saturday. His rash is getting worse and they want to keep his levels up high to help his body fight GVHD, if that is what it is. Considering all that, his kidneys are maintaining consistency at the level they're at, which is a little miracle in itself.
On Sunday, Daylon rolled a bit during nap time and his G-tube started to fall out. I'm almost grateful I was at church for all that. By the time I called, Brian had dealt with the fiasco (he called the BMT Fellow) and it was over. Good save, Brian!
OH! I forgot! The end of last week Daylon started using his left hand to clap by hitting his tummy! It was so fun to watch him adapt to his circumstances and be happy. Each day this weekend, he made big strides with moving his right arm up and getting it to interact with his left. Sunday night he start actually clapping! That's right folks! Both hands, moving together!...on purpose! Go Daylon!
