Santorum’s Youngest Daughter Returns To Hospital

Filed by KOSU News in Politics.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s youngest daughter, Isabella, has returned to the hospital. Known as “Bella,” the three-year-old has been battling Trisomy-18, a congenital condition similar to Down syndrome, since birth. No details on her current condition were made available.

A statement from Santorum’s national communications director Hogan Gidley read:

“Rick and his wife Karen have taken their daughter Bella to the hospital. The family requests prayers and privacy as Bella works her way to recovery.”

Santorum had previously planned to take a break from campaigning through the Easter holiday and resume his campaign schedule in Pennsylvania on Monday.

Santorum left the campaign trail for several days in late January when Bella faced a bout of pneumonia linked to her condition. His eldest daughter, Elizabeth, campaigned in his place. [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
