Aria is ok… - Aria MacDonald

Aria is ok…

…..for someone who was vomiting blood and nasty stuff.  She is in good spirits and wandering around the place pretty happily.

BUT, there is bleeding coming from somewhere in her body which caused her to have blood in her outputs.  Tomorrow she is having an endoscopy, where they put a camera down and have a look.  There is a bunch of things that could cause it.  Best case maybe her G Tube that goes into her tummy could of made a scratch or something about blood not being able to get to her liver and it going somewhere else and causing a blood vessel to burst.

Truth be told I don’t really get it and can’t be bothered trying to figure out all the different theories.  We will know more tomorrow when they go and have a look.  At least she is well.  But we can’t leave the ward because they don’t know where the bleeding is coming from so if she was to ‘spring a leak’ then we need to be handle to help.  Yikes!  Don’t like the sound of that!!!

Honestly, this completely sucks.  We just want to go to transplant and have this over with.  There just seems to be more and more complications for Aria, it sucks.

    HI Anita
    Sorry Aria is back in and yes it does suck!
    I can get email in but not out while I’m away. Yes we went through that same site as we were too busy to do it ourselves but this time now we understand a little more we will do it ourselves. Hope that makes sense. Will reply more when I get home. Hopefully Aria is a quick fix and you will be home too.
    Thinking of you.

    I’m sorry, I know it does get overwhelming and you feel like you just can’t or don’t want to take any more crap thrown at you. But, this is a solveable problem. I hate that you are back in hospital, I still dread every visit for us too.

    But, Aria could well stay very stable until her transplant so hold on to that, only a few more months until she is on that list. It’s so close you can almost taste it but don’t give up now. I know you can do it. you CAN cope and you WILL cope, it’s the limbo land that is the biggest hurdle, hurry up and wait seems like the catch phrase that comes to mind! Hang in there, lots of love and hugs xxx
