Home for Christmas? - Aria MacDonald

Home for Christmas?

We got a nice surprise this morning when the Pulmonary Doc came in and started talking about being for Christmas!  I was a bit taken aback but she was convinced that Aria could go home if we got the BiPap machine for home sorted.

So tonight Aria is trailing a home machine in the PICU and hopefully it will go well and we can get home on Christmas Eve!  She did ok on the hospital one but the mask wasn’t very ideal, thankfully the home health company brought a bunch to try and I think we got the right one.

She seems much happier today, still napping a lot which is a good thing.  Hopefully another decent nights sleep will help her improve.

Anyway Merry Christmas!  Hopefully our next update will be from HOME.
