Yay- I like these posts - Aria MacDonald

Yay- I like these posts

Yay I like writing good news posts

Proverbs 25:25 (New International Version)

25 Like cold water to a weary soul
is good news from a distant land.

We got word today that our accommodation funding has been approved from our local DHB.  We are so happy.  We have signed the lease for our new place on Monday so we are very pleased to get word.  We move on the  14th of April into our new condo.

I can’t remember what I have shared about this place.  But is it perfect in many many ways.  First up the price is only $3 more a night than what the Govt is paying for our room at the Lied (which is cheap hospital/hotel rates).  The price includes all utilities including broadband and phone.  Yay for not having the hassle of setting all that stuff up!  It is also fully furnished including linen, pots, pans plates etc etc.  Washer and dryer. Yay for not having the hassle of buying stuff and spending Trust money or having to sell again.  Lots of space 1700 square feet.  Very safe with gated entry and access code to get into the building

It is a really beautiful place, new and nice.  Perfect and we are so so thankful.  The only downside is it that is 20 mins from the hospital and not close to Bellevue where Carol and Cordell are.  But we do have two lovely families close by who we know well- yay for friends!  And also another hospital family in the complex too.

We may have to get a few things and will buy Aria a new bed and mattress but all and all I think it is a big money saver for us and the DHB.

So praise the Lord, this is truly an unexpected answer to prayer.

Aria did 3 90 mins sprints on the vent today and did well all three times.  Unless they are messing with her and she holds her breath- funny girl.

Unfortunately this post can’t all be sunshine and roses.  She is battling cellulitis and it isn’t clearing after 2 days of ABX  so the fever and high heart rate continue.  There was talk of the OR again by the Infectious Diseases team but transplant said no.  There was some misunderstanding about the course of treatment today so we are hoping tomorrow things will be clearer.

Please pray that the bacteria in her body will be killed and this hole in her bowel will close up.

But yay for answered prayer!

  14. Samantha Sutherland says:

    Great news about Aria doing so well on the sprints – a great step forward. I’m sure the docs will resolve the cellulitis problem so Aria can make more steps forward too.

    Having a ‘home’ is going to be great for you. It will help you feel much more settled and life will feel less in limbo. A good chance to meet other families and neighbours for when you are all living there too. Great that the furnishing side is all taken care of and you can just add your own personal touches to make it yours. Take care.

    hey guys

    awesome news about the house and a move.. i was just thinking though is living 20 minutes away from the hospital any different to living in manurewa and having to go to starship?? i’m sure it took me that long to auckland hospital from mum’s in manurewa on a good run.. but i digress..

    will keep lifting up aria in our prayers and she’s still on the 24 hour prayer chain for the hole in her bowel to be fixed the woman who runs that chain said to me we’re going to leave her on till we hear the answer to prayer we all desire…

    You see for a very long time there has been an on going battle and a hotly contested fight between exactly what
    I call tattoo traditionalists and the more recent tattoo artists.
    This is actually a reflection or similar to the age old power battle
    that teens frequently go through as they attempt to form their own identity and separate themselves from their parents.

    You should then re-use this video footage to produce your very own DVD.
    Having your own DVD consisting of suggestions makes a very great
    front final product. You can sell it to those you would
    such as to become long term customers for your work from home based business.
    By appearing in the video you right away find as a real individual,
    rather than a faceless corporation or business!

    Both long and brief term loans are on the offer. Long term loans are basically
    for performing long-term methods of a business.
    They are, by nature, buoyed up by not having very precise repayment clauses.

    Nor are they handicapped by having pay-by-date.

    Wait until your business sees a significant enhancement
    and then begin paying. Only do not take all your life.
    Small businesses can take the loans to take care of short-term uses and repay whenever there is money enough
    to repay.
    Some examples of companies that use viral marketing
    in their online video advertising campaigns would be Audi, Nike, Coca Soda and most recently Old Spice.
    Now the majority of us have seen the hilarious Old Spice marketing Campaigns about smelling
    like a man and not a woman!
    Anyone with a website can generate income with
    affiliate programs and ads. You do not have to have a huge or specifically well known web site to
    get huge name ads. However it is much easier. You require to begin with smaller sized marketers if you have a smaller sized internet site, however you can still
    begin producing advertising income, even when your site is
    still unknown.
    I think everybody knows that it is not required to get a prescription internet marketing
    for fish oil nor does it have to be FDA approved.
    When was the last time you went to a seafood restaurant and asked for the chefs Rx recommended catch of the day?
    The factor is that fish oil is food, not a drug.

    The other benefit of concentrating on service and
    not sales, is that you are more in positioning with yourself.
    Since you like help people and it’s distasteful to
    you when you turn people into dollar signs, you probably got
    into the real estate business.
    Having a strong guarantee is a vital part of your sales copy.
    If you want people to purchase your product, you need to very first give them some peace of mind.

    By revealing confidence in your very own product, you help to impart
    that feeling in others. Their worries about purchasing
    will be put aside if you can prove that you are positive about what you’re selling and that you
    will certainly presume all the threat. This works like a mental trigger and instantly makes
    the prospect feel comfy.

  61. Rubin says:

    Here are two random and usable observations own post writing.
    Choose a few which you can utilise immediately before
    your head strikes the pillow tonight.
    For example are you mindful the only some 50 % of people who enter a keyword into their online search engine exceed
    page one to page 2? However of those that
    go beyond page one to page 2, only some 30 % of them make
    it to page 3. Then it gets even worse for pages beyond that since it’s only however a
    mere portion of searchers who continue to be that make it even more on.

    However this scenario didn’t happen in a huge
    company. Considered that you might count the business’s personnel on one hand and not utilise all the fingers, it was more
    like the pinkie had not been working with the thumb.
    The more you can discover each of the internet marketing masters the simpler it will be for you
    to choose who you wish to pick up from. Invest some time doing searches and visiting forums, especially if you have
    no idea who the experts are. You can learn quickly enough in forums who they are and if you
    don’t discover anything you can constantly ask.
    There is a glut of budget friendly residential property.
    The marketplace is oversaturated. So you have to stand apart in the crowd, and the very best
    way to do that is a effective and huge advertising project.

    Ask a great deal of concerns. Do not be positive with just
    one answer. The only way you can learn the reality
    is if you ask concerns internet marketing until you get to the bottom of things.

    Learn more about the other members and posters.
    Bear in mind a great deal of these people have known each other for
    a while. They may even be doing company behind the scenes – partnerships, joint ventures and so on.
    So in establishing a website or blog site, and you desire to
    earn money from Ad Sense, it is clever to examine the keywords in your subject,
    the competition in your specific niche, and if the amount of visitors
    you outlook is achievable. Since these are the aspects that will work out much you might earn from Advertisement Sense,
    the explanation why you have to take note of these
    is. So, it is really a mix of clever writing and online marketing.

  62. Colby says:

    If you were raised in America, then you certainly had a childhood in which you experienced salespeople coming
    to the door. How did your parents react to that?

    What type of comments that they make about salespeople?

    For example are you mindful the just some 50 % of individuals who go into a keyword into their online search engine exceed page one to
    page two? Then once more of those that go beyond page one to page two, just some 30 % of them make it to page 3.
    Then it gets even worse for pages beyond that since it’s just but a mere fraction of searchers who remain that make
    it additionally on.

    Comcast shot themselves in the foot with this step. In the past it did not matter to them.
    They had no competitors so they had absolutely nothing to run the risk of.
    Now nevertheless there is growing competitors.
    So if you want an ideal example of what business utilise viral marketing, look them up on youtube
    or simply log into your facebook. Chances are you have actually seen them being passed around from pal to close
    friend on Facebook, Twitter and even through your e-mail.

    What I imply by this is, they spend numerous hours studying movie of previous video games of their challengers to comprehend what their every move will certainly be.

    All groups do this, but those who do it appropriately and correctly will get the benefit.
    You have to do the same for your business, to enable your advertising to be
    You require to seek help if your response is yes.If not, don’t lose your time or your thoughts telling yourself this
    is not for you. Instead, spend this time and
    these thoughts on doing exactly what internet marketing other successful individuals are doing.
    Overtake their momentum.
    Organizational structure: The structure of your company ought to be
    most carefully satisfying the requirement of the market.
    You can pick to own any structure that satisfies your needs for offering your simpleness and ease
    in operation.
    The crooks at these stock investing robot web pages try to pass this “software” off as deserving $28,000 per license.
    I beg to vary. In reality, my buddy about at Trainee Trader looked
    into the coding of an individual of these programs and
    found it wasn’t a plan at all. The system in query simply fetched a preloaded choice from a server
    the minute a day, acting to do perform along the method.

    Numerous writers feel that the content of their post is their major concern. They spent
    their time in creating the finest material for their article after elaborative
    research. Lastly, in less than a minute they end up with the title.

    You must not have much issue in writing contents when you find the
    subject title to write on. One of the crucial things to write quick posts is not to
    think while composing. Simply put in all the info
    you have and compose as if you are speaking with your friend.
    This is due to the fact that you are not going to get
    any advantage if you spend 1 hour in composing just
    1 article. To apply short article marketing method appropriately you need to be able to compose minimum 5 short articles
    in an hour.

    Setting a primary objective of generating income online needs a planning for success.

    The plan you put together need proper research study and you should take the “infant steps”

    an Elephant? The answer, one bite at a time.
    The next step is to find somebody to host your web
    site. Once more, locations like GoDaddy have hosting
    prepare for under $10 a month. HostGator.com is another actually good
    hosting company, and is utilized by several
    “heavy hitter”, master types, of internet
    marketing. The discount rates can go deeper if you have numerous sites.

    Another type of opportunity to understand, because you
    will certainly be experiencing it more and more, is the one linked in some
    method to advertising. You may have already become aware of web sites rewarding
    you in some way to see advertisements, read emails, click on banners or full surveys or offers.

    Keep in mind, Viral internet marketing Videos are unpredictable.but
    that’s part of exactly what makes them so effective! Take the Old Spice Commercial for
    example.that went Viral on YouTube and on Facebook!
    And why ?? Since it was initial and humorous!! So the typical style will typically either
    be clever creativity, humor or both! Creativity that is based upon the current popular culture– what is big and popular TODAY!
    Or that is so smart and smart that it will then just BECOME our pop
    That is why if you prepare to offer your homes at challenging times, you
    need to utilise all techniques in the book to close the sale.
    It is a challenging competitors out there. Nevertheless, if
    you play your cards right you can get an opportunity to score some large amounts.

    When you’re done reading this short article, grab a pen and paper,
    and write down just ONE advertising tool, list building technique, or business building idea you’ve been considering in your head just recently.
