Tomorrow…. - Aria MacDonald


The plan for tomorrow is that we will try extubation again first thing in the morning. Now there are other factors that might delay it, but that is the general plan.

It brings on a mix of emotions, obviously to be free of it would be neat, but there is also some nervousness about it. There is the question of how she will cope with it, and also about how she will respond to having nasal prongs in. Hopefully everything goes smoothly and we will be able to share with you tomorrow night that she is free of the vent.

Today has been a busy day for Aria again and she has been a little upset with the nurses and doctors because of it. As she is on pretty low sedation at the moment she is aware of most everything going on and can express her displeasure.

The biggest thing done today was a biopsy of her bowel, just to check that everything is settling in there ok and there isn’t any rejection occuring.

We’ll keep you posted on the vent, and we’d appreciate if you could keep on keeping her breathing in your prayers.

    Will be praying for this specifically and for all other things to go well. Also for you and Hamish so you may have peace while you wait.

    My morning devotion stopped me in my tracks this morning. I stopped to think of you all.

    Jesus is the master healer. That we must never doubt Gods desire for our wholeness.

    I read Luke 5:12 where it says “Lord, you have the power to make me well, if only you wanted to.” I pray God continues healing Aria. I pray He makes her a whole able bodied person.

    I also pray that He gives you – Anita and Hamish the energy and strength to endure all the ups and downs that see Aria made into a whole “normal” girl.

    My heart goes out to you. None of this is easy but all things are possible when we lean on Him. Continue to put your faith in Him

    am praying that Aria copes well with extubation and that her healers are continued to be guided by The hand of Jesus – much strength and serenity to you

    Praying that extubation goes well and Aria copes with the prongs in her nose. God bless you all.
