Go Home Stay Home? - Aria MacDonald

Go Home Stay Home?

We are home, again!  Will we stay here?  We hope so!

It is great to be home, Aria’s temp was perfect last night as per Dr E’s instructions.  Aria got shown the temperature chart, which was due to start a new page that night and firm instructions (which included the use of Aria’s full name!) to behave :)   Funnily enough Aria does seem to listen to Dr E, I think it is the cool british accent.

Aria is on some oral medication which is new for us- cherry flavoured!! She really likes it.  Her tummy has some fungal yeast infection which is common after lots of antibiotics.  Anyway it will go into her mouth and out her tummy thru her gastrostomy.  It doesn’t go into her blood stream.  Aria has started to ‘drink’ water.  She doesn’t absorb it, it is a bit like pouring water on your head, it won’t quench your thirst, but it is nice for her to get some oral drinking skills.

    Ok so Aria isnt quite processing the water and medicine as the rest of us do, but i can only imagine how great it must feel to see her having a little drink!! It is just the start of something amazing!! Great news that you are home again, I do hope that it is for a lovely long relaxing time! Hope that the pregnancy is also going well Anita!!

    Yay for water! Drinking is an excellent skill to have (and I don’t mean the good stuff – I am actually talking about water!). Soon she will be a water connoisseur! GO ARIA!!!
