Problems and Peace - Aria MacDonald

Problems and Peace

Unfortunately Aria’s health has down a backward peddle overnight :(

She had 2 doses of IV panadol and 2 doses of morphine and that just managed to keep her pain at bay.  She was waking pretty much on the hour and yelling.  It was a really awful night for her and I (and probably our neighbours at Starship sorry!)

Today she is having a blood transfusion.  And in big-ish news the Docs are dropping this lipids in her TPN a couple of nights a week in a bid to save her liver.  That is the ‘fat’ in her TPN.  But because she isn’t doing much except lying and sitting she can afford the drop in calories.

Tonight Nana is going to stay the night with Aria.  At least I think that is still the plan.  We really need to give Asher some Mum and Dad time but it is hard to leave Aria when she is in pain.  Hopefully the morphine will help better tonight.

Today we are waiting for the big decision.  I feel remarkably calm and at peace although shockingly tired with a big headache from lack of sleep last night!  This is exactly how I felt when Aria was in surgery at 13 days old and we were waiting for hours to know whether her intestine would ever work or not.  It was the worst possible outcome and we were told she would die.  BUT my feeling of peace was not incorrect- everything was fine in the end.

So hopefully tonight we will have news- good news.   Please keep us in your prayers.  And more importantly please pray for Aria’s health.
