I love hospital - Aria MacDonald

I love hospital

Aria got a Orthopeadics consult at 3am this morning.  Well actually they showed up to examine her and Hamish advised them to come back in the morning or something perhaps a bit less polite.  Seriously who examines a 3 year old in the middle of the night, it isn’t like her leg was about to drop off!?

I was also feeling the hospital love at the bone scan yesterday.  There should be a rule about doctors not handing central lines.  I held my breath and prayed nothing nasty would jump into her line at the same time kicking myself that I hadn’t drawn up a flush and hep lock myself.  

Anyway enough moaning.  Hopefully Ortho will be back at a more reasonable hour this morning!  We are very keen to see them of course because it is likely they hold the answer to Aria’s knee.  We are nervous it is a break and we will be left with no answers to what is troubling Aria AND broken knees.  Do knees break?  I don’t know.

Hamish and I have been married 9 years today!  Never did I think 9 years ago this is how we would be spending our 9th wedding anni.  Me at home with Ash and Hamish in hospital with Aria.   Still we are planning to go out to dinner tonight.  Planning on eating a dirty great big steak as per Jodee’s advice to enjoy our steak in NZ because the US steak just isn’t the same.

Hopefully today holds answers.  Wouldn’t it be good if we got THE ANSWER and Hamish and I could celebrate with some bubbles at dinner tonight.  Unlikely but dreams are free.

    Congratulations Anita and Hamish on the years that God has given you as a couple. IT’s obviously been with ups and downs but God has gone before and is leading and guiding for HIS purposes. So often we don’t see this and we pray that you’ll be able to take some time out and be thankful (not saying your not, so please don’t take me wrong) of what God has done over the past 9 years and that HE will give many more. Uplifting you too at this time with the uncertainty with Aria…we may not be in touch much but we do check regularly at the site and uplift as God enables.

    Enjoy some couple time tonight and may God bless.

    With greetings from the South,
    Gordon & Coralie & family

    Congratulations on 9 yrs. of marriage! That’s wonderful! With all the stress & worry you’ve had to endure, you should have a great time on your anniversary!
    Who the heck is in charge at that hospital? I think anyone would be grumpy to be woken up at 3am! I hope they find what’s wrong with Aria! I’m from the states & have never tried New Zealand steak.
    I would LOVE to visit New Zealand though! I guess I will have to try the steak there, if I ever get to go.
    I wish you all the best, & many more years of happiness together! God Bless!

    A very happy anniversary to you both. We celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary in September, and it is my husband’s 73rd birthday today November 25th. My very best wishes and prayers for all of you and all those who are involved with you in any way whatsoever. I pray that you all may know the peace, comfort and love of God in a very special way.
