We have some answers, but are they the ones we need?? - Aria MacDonald

We have some answers, but are they the ones we need??

Hey there, Wednesday night is here and finally the Drs have come back with some results that they think can get this drama sorted out.

Turns out that Aria has some nasty bugs growing out of control in her stomach.

All of us have these sorts of bugs living in us but for some reason the Drs are thinking that they have gotten out of hand in Aria. It might be because they would pass through a person with a normal digestive system or it might be because they bag that drains Aria’s stomach contents wasn’t doing the job well enough, or perhaps it came about because of her system being weak from another source of infection, it’s hard to know for sure.

To solve this problem they have hooked her up to different antibiotics that are effective against these particular bugs. She isn’t responding to this as yet but it normally takes a day or two to see results.

The question then becomes was this the cause of the problems or was this something that is a side effect or was allowed to happen because of some other trouble. I guess only time will tell.

In other news Aria had her red blood cells topped up today meaning she got her dinner very late. Its amazing how well she copes going without nutrition, I know if I was in her position I would be far more cranky than she gets. Yet another demonstration of just how resilient our little darling girl is.

Well hopefully the news from here continues to get better and better and we have broken the back of this little mystery.

Thanks for taking an interest and God Bless.

    Great news to hear that you now have a particular strain of bacteria isolated so treatment can be more specific. Hugs for the next few hours which will be the hardest as the drugs start to do their thing.

    We will check up in the morning to see how you are going.

    Hugs, Michelle, Sophie & Michael
