Photos of her insides… - Aria MacDonald

Photos of her insides…

Today Aria has had a couple of tests.

Firstly she had an ultrasound which at times can be a bit hairy as Aria needs to lie pretty still while they slime her with goo and poke her with the wand/paddly thing. This morning however Aria handled it like the champion she is. She was excited to be heading off the ward and down stairs for some photos of her tummy as we call it. She got on the bed and quietly watched Piglets BIG Movie while the ultrasound lady did lots of soundings. She was awesome.

Shortly after that we got called down to theatre for her endoscopy. She was happy again playing in the pre-op room, running around and sorting blocks (then throwing them all around the room with Viv the pre-op nurse). She laughed as daddy got into the gowns they make you wear to go into the operating theatres and then demanded to walk into the theatre. She got most of the way there before deciding that Dad carrying her was a nicer option.

We’re waiting for the call from recovery to let us know she has woken up again. We’ve already talked to Simon our Dr this week and he says that apart from some general irriation inside the stomach, there is nothing obviously wrong. This is good  news because it means that her liver isn’t packing it in, in any hurry. He also gave us some photos of the procedure…. so now we literally have photos of Aria’s insides.

Hopefully we will be able to come home tomorrow, we just need another incident free night and to learn how to administer Aria her IV anti-acid so we can do it at home.

Hopefully our next report will have us all at home safe and sound.

    Glad to hear it isn’t anything to major (not that being in hospital isn’t major enough in itself :( ) and praying that you will all be home again tomorrow.

    Hi Anita,
    You don’t know me, but you know my friend Priscilla Camp. She told me about Aria, & I have been following her story ever since she was born (or almost).
    I’m glad to hear that it’s nothing serious! I hope Aria gets better fast, & I pray she will be able to get her transplant soon!

    Motorbike accessories (gry) is a entirely inclusive label, which lot covers from vigilant accessories and gears to installations and parts to enhance the bike’s performance. Harmonious of the most sought-after motorcycle confederate in the market right now are gears that doesn’t barely safeguard the rider but those that can also lift the entire look of the rider, and that’s leather motorcycle accessories.
