Meeting Samuel - Aria MacDonald

Meeting Samuel

Yesterday Hamish and I met a very special little man and his mum and dad.  Samuel Davy was born on the 6th of June this year with a very rare condition that impacts his kidneys, bladder, heart and intestine.  Like Aria he has kidney problems and they think he might be TPN dependant too as it is thought his intestine doesn’t go like Aria’s. 

We had a great time with them.  Well ‘great’ given the circumstances.  We had lots to talk about and we share the faith in God to sustain us and our children thru this ordeal.  We showed them photos of Aria and how she is doing and told them a bit about home TPN.  We got to see Sam and stay a bit while they did his cares and just take in this handsome little boy.

Please pray for this family, they are going thru a very tough time.

Today marks the end of Emo June.  Emo being short of emotional.  It is 3 years to the day in which we first met Helen Evans, Dr E.  It was a frank and honest meeting, along the lines of ‘this is what you are in for’.  BUT ended in Dr E saying that she and the hospital would support our decision to proceed to transplant with Aria.  YAY!!  Never will we forget that.  And never will we forget our gratefulness to her and the rest of the Gastro team.  A big thank you Dr E, you mean a great deal to our family.

    I think it’s great that you shared your story with this couple! You can probably help them to know, what to expect. I hope Aria gets her transplant soon, & I hope that little Samuel Davy will have as good an outcome as Aria has had so far (despite the obstacles she’s been through)! I pray both you & Samuel’s parents will be blessed with enough money to get the transplants done!
