I am obsessed - Aria MacDonald

I am obsessed

 I am obsessed with this darn ticker !! :roll:

It sits on my google home page so I see it everyday and I keep watching for it to read 3 months!

It is crazy the amount of time I spend thinking about the fact Aria isn’t in hospital and wondering when we will be there next?  It has been such a regular part of our lives for so long it is strange not being there.  I know, I am mad, crazy and all those other words. 

I need not worry cause we are back on Tuesday for the long day stay appointment.  Aria’s TPN doesn’t contain Iron so she needs an infusion which takes 8 hours +.   I think I was overdue with Asher when the last one was planned but for some reason her bloods came back good and I dodged the bullet. 

This time, amazing, Hamish has annual leave planned on the week Dr E wanted it done.  Can you imagine Aria hooked up to a pump in a room all day and me trying to manage Asher as well.  No thanks!!!  So the MacDonalds are off to daystay on Tuesday.  They are lovely there, I got a yummy lunch last time I was there and they took great care of me and the kids.  Anyone who has eaten Auckland/Starship Hospital food will know the food is far from yummy so I was pretty happy to get such a nice lunch. :D

Anyway so from today on, it is time to start enjoying Aria’s good health and stop thinking about hospital! :lol:

    Anita – I completely understand. I don’t have a visual ticker like you do but an internal clock which tells me we have been too lucky for too long – its not pessimism just reality! Way to go Aria for staying so well for so long – must be something in the air as Matisse is low on iron at the moment too and we are trying to avoid an infusion with oral iron -ha you can imagine how much of that is being absorbed!!!
    Thinking of you guys all the time!!!!

    I understand too!! Ha ha you have to get used to staying at home now! Such good news but I’m sure it does feel a little weird too. I am looking forward to three months at home with Lara – can’t be too far off!!!

    Get well soon.
    Lots of love xxx
