So great to be home - Aria MacDonald

So great to be home

We have had a nice few days at home. Aria is changing and growing and this homecoming has been quite different to the rest. She seems to be remembering things and people over longer periods of time. The cat got a warm reception although I don’t think the feeling was shared by him! She remembers her toys, her fave being her Carebears ball and her Jolly Jumper.

It is getting harder to entertain her in hospital, I think she gets quite bored. At home we are quite busy with different things, friends, playing, singing and appointments and other stuff. At hospital it is life in one room, not fun. A friend of Aria’s came to visit who is quite a clever walker. Aria sat bolt upright the whole time and watched her little buddy explore. It was great to break up the boredom for Aria and me too cause I got to chat to her mummy!

Aria is also now the proud owner of 12 teeth!! While they aren’t getting much use right now, they will one day!

    I just stumbled into your website while surfing the web. I just want to let you know that we also have a 3 month old baby boy who has (almost) total Hirschsprung so we know what you’re going through. He has 12cm of working intestine and is on 23 hours of PN a day. Not enough intestine to feed normally. We are also waiting for our son to get a little bigger so he can get a small bowel transplant. If you’d like more info on our son you can go to and search for DavidSedano.
    Well, wish you the best of luck to you and your beautiful daughter.
