Onwards and upwards - Aria MacDonald

Onwards and upwards

Aria’s stomach continues to empty itself of the nasty brown gunge, I think by the end of today it would have been almost 2 litres since it started!!   Last night was the best night we have had in awhile.  No more waking up and yelling in pain although she did wake up and call out, perhaps it has become a bit of a habit.

Aria has been up and walking around this morning so that is great!  She is lying down now and Poppa is reading her books which she is pretty happy about.  Aria loves books.

Last night I managed to leave Aria for the last hour with our lovely carer Kerrianne and get into town to see Sam’s mum Shirley.  We even left the hospital and walked down the road and had dinner out like regular people.  It was pretty cool.  We had lots to talk about.  Shirley told me a bit about their life in Laos.  Of course surviving hospital was a topic as was TPN.  It was a really blessed time.

I went to see Sam in PICU too before and after dinner.  The consultant recognised me and we had a friendly chat.  I was kinda surprised that she remembered me cause we were only there 3 days.  Seeing Sam was really nice.  He is so cute and looks a lot different than when we last saw him.  He is a brave boy and did I mention he was cute? ;)
