The feeling… - Aria MacDonald

The feeling…

…you know that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you know something bad is going to happen.

Aria is not herself, she is currently lying down in bed, awake at 11am. I am happy to leave her there cause I know she will tell me if she isn’t happy and wants up. I am hoping it is the heat and the muggy weather that is making her tired but I fear otherwise.

It is hard living with the threat of hospital hanging over your head. Worst than that is that Aria is going to be sick, again and feel bad, again. If I could swap with her I would in a second.

I went in last night and felt her head. It felt warm and my heart sank. “here we go”, I thought. I got the thermometer and it read 37.1. I know, normal right. Well not for Aria, nothing to panic about but she is normally 36.6-37, never 37.1. It amazed me that we have been doing this so long I can feel by touch that her temp is out by .1 of a degree.

Thankfully nothing came of it, yet. Do I sound like a pessimist? Maybe I am, I don’t mean to be but I can’t ignore that nagging feeling.

*Sigh* watch this space. May I be eating my words!!!

    Heres hoping it is just the heat, it has been really muggy the last few days. Thinking of you all.

    Fingers crossed its just the weather. My little man has been much the same right down to the only slightly raised temp. I don’t think you are a pessimist, just a realist. I hope today brings better news.

    So sorry to see your page this morning – it’s a call for more frequent prayer during my day! Honey, look behind, see how far you’ve come so far and how the Lord has upheld and enabled you. I know that you realise that, but sometimes it doesn’t hurt to reinforce it for you.
    Blessings, A.G.

    You know how in tune you and I are, and have always been with each other? It is a wondrous thing that you are so in tune with your offspring, right down to .1 of a degree.

    Hang in their kiddo and hope and pray the hot summer nights will end soon. Her higher temp will be her way of coping with the heat. And we all know that all things are working out for the good.

    Miracles happen. Just look at that 9yo girl in Sydney just reported tonight:-

    “An Australian girl spontaneously switched blood groups and adopted her donor’s immune system following a liver transplant in the first known case of its type, doctors treating her said Thursday.”

    Hey, I think your really on point with this, I won’t say I agree with you completely , but its not really that much of a issue.

    I do love the way you have framed this difficulty and it does present me a lot of fodder for thought. Nonetheless, because of what I have seen, I simply just wish as the actual responses stack on that people today continue to be on issue and not start on a soap box associated with the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this fantastic point and although I do not concur with this in totality, I value your perspective.
