Making a wish? - Aria MacDonald

Making a wish?

It is Saturday morning here and two more days until the grandparents leave.  Yikes!

Aria is having a lunchtime nap.  She was pretty grumpy this morning so we put her down for a nap and she was sleep in minutes.

Good news is that our nights are greatly improved.  I only had to get up once last night.  Mine you it did involve topping up the feed pump, stripping the bed, changing Aria’s PJs and nappy and suctioning her.  That’s that fine though.

We got a call from Make A Wish yesterday!  How exciting!  They are coming to the house next week to talk to us about Aria’s wish and do the paper work.  At this stage it is looking like a trip to Disneyworld in Florida and staying at Give Kids the World.  I think Aria would love a family vacation and because we are coming home wishing for a certain item isn’t probably not the best idea.  Still they will come and talk with her and us and see what she would like.  All of this is pending Aria’s health and permission from her docs of course.  I just can’t believe we might have the opportunity to do this thanks to TWO amazing organisations!  Completely cool.

I am currently home alone with both kids, kinda weird.  Then I remember this used to be my full time job!  I think I am outta practice so glad one of them is sleeping!  Better go!

    I do hope Aria can get her wish granted whatever it might be. That would be great! Sounds as if that once up last night was at least one hour!! but improving all the time. Enjoy the next two days while you have the grandparents there xx

    Good news on the make a wish foundation front. Glad to hear the nights are improving, and it doesn’t surprise me in the least that she needs those mid day naps,i suppose she will for a while her body has a lot of healing still to d and they do say that sleep is the best medicine after all. All the best.

    I am a Nurse myself and know that when the progress notes are reporting ordinary every day things the patient is well on the way to recovery. I have been reading all your daily letters and see a huge amount of progress. Glad that everything is going well.
