Home sweet home - Aria MacDonald

Home sweet home

Aria is off insulin now which is great news!!  Our night were pretty awful having to wake her to give her a finger prick to test her blood sugar.  Not a nice way to wake up!!  We tried different ways to wake her to make it easier but nothing worked.  Still only one more night and one more finger prick and we should be sorted.

It is nice being home.  Emotionally we are still drained.  I feel like I need a weeks holiday on the beach to recover.  But there is heaps to do at home, two weeks worth of washing, housework and general errands to catch up on.  No time for resting!!

Aria is back at daycare this week which she is really enjoying.  Ashie is joining her this afternoon for a couple of hours which is nice for them and me too.

There were so many kind people who did lovely things for us while we were in and when we came home.  Thanks to Poppa and Rebecca for their daily support.  Their kindness saved me really.  It is amazing who God brings into your life to carry you thru the hard times.

    Great news! For you all! We are so pleased to hear that the end is in sight for the finger pricks and the insulin.

    Hopefully you can all get some more much needed sleep this weekend.

    We will be thinking of you still.

    Love to all, and cuddles for Aria and Ashie

    ….and let’s not forget Grandma who put in a lot of time and effort on our behalf from those of us in Australia who aren’t physically there. Grandma’s staying overnight so Hamish could go home for a good night’s sleep and the many hours taking Aria out in the frash air is just one super human effort. You are right Anita when you say, “It is amazing who God brings into your life to carry you thru the hard times”. Praise God for the likes of Grandma, Grandpop Bob and Rebecca. I don’t know how they all do it. But we know WHY they do it :) For the love of you and the children. Stunning, just really stunning people!
