Busy Parent Briefing: Bella Santorum's Condition Improves, Rick Santorum to Return to Campaign Trail

It looks like former Senator Rick Santorum will be back on the campaign trail sooner than expected. Santorum cancelled several appearances in Florida yesterday due to health problems suffered by his daughter Bella, 3, who was hospitalized with pneumonia. Luckily, the girl fell ill during once of his rare trips home, the first since Christmas day, and he was able to accompany her to the hospital.

According to Santorum, Bella has made a miraculous recovery. “Life for the Santorum family has improved dramatically since this afternoon,” he told reporters. “We’ve still got a long way to go, but she’s without a doubt turned a corner.”

Santorum spent the weekend with his daughter, but plans to return to the campaign trail tomorrow afternoon. Though Bella still requires a mask to breathe, she is expected to be released from the hospital in the next 2-4 days.
