Izabella’s Story

Izabella

Started Care: April 2017
Diagnosis: Unspecified

Izabella is two years old and has been diagnosed with multiple complications. Her conditions include a number of unspecified symptoms involving the nervous and musculoskeletal systems including chronic respiratory failure, congenital laryngomalacia, bilateral vocal cord paralysis, developmental delay, seizure disorder, and congenital ichthyosis. Izabella has also been diagnosed with infantile spasms, a type of epilepsy, which is a disorder that causes sudden changes in the brain’s electrical system that controls everything Izabella feels and does.

Izabella is ventilator, trach, and G-tube dependant, and her care requires detailed attention. With the help of Premier and her nurses, she is receiving the daily care she needs to thrive. Like many children her age, Izabella loves to smile–especially if she is watching Disney’s “Frozen.” Despite being constantly monitored on her ventilator, she enjoys wiggling to happy music and is becoming stronger every day. “I believe with the perfect fit, a relationship can evolve,” says Jennifer B., Izabella’s Service Coordinator. Izabella’s progress is a testament to her dedicated and loving nursing care.

You’re never prepared for something like this. Everything changed when Mary (Izabella’s nurse) came. Our change was only supposed to be for Izabella, but it has changed in more ways than you can imagine. It’s a blessing to have a company like this.
