Bella today – by miracle of God, she survived and thrives

Bella survives today by the Grace of God. She was inches from death Sept. 6, 2018. Today we take her on the early morning hour-long drive to Colorado Springs to her specialists who provided round-the-clock care and 2 whole body blood transfusions. They saved her life. She is still on Prednisone and Azathioprine, which are her 2 remaining medications of 6 since her auto-immune diagnosis. Bella is slowly being weaned off the Prednisone, but the Azathioprine, Bella will be on for life. Even though Bella looked healthy, there were tell-tale signs we nearly missed until too late.

Isabella Margarita when she's in trouble (otherwise around the house known as Bella) has made a remarkable recovery – albeit it $8K later. It has been a long, long journey. In this photo Bella is harassing her brother Jayzbo (both Kelpies), a daily occurrence. Bella tries to puts Jayzbo in his place – behind her. She's our alpha-girl.
