7 weeks later - Aria MacDonald

7 weeks later

Tomorrow will mark 7 weeks for this admission.  Technically she was discharged, for a day, before being readmitted.  That that was probably more stress than it was worth.

Tomorrow Aria will be on full feeds!  Her output is back to base line.  Like before Norwalk baseline!!   I thought this day would NEVER come.  Actually I did because I felt God was going to restore her bowel but the day seemed unobtainable at times.  It has been 5 months!!!

Tomorrow, it is planned today, that Aria will be discharged home.  This has seemed unobtainable at times.

Today, please storm the heavens for us that God would be willing to discharge her and KEEP HER HOME to allow us time to recover.

Today we still don’t have answers to the many questions about her current condition.  This is really tough.  There are serious and minor issues pending and no easy way to get answers.  Still God, in His wisdom, has not revealed them yet or may never.  We reconcile our will to His.

Yesterday we started a drug that should bring back Aria’s ANC.  We pray that God will bless it!  And bless Aria as she receives it, it is a shot in the leg :( And bless us as we have to give it to her :(

    Praying on that God will continue to bless your family and keep you all in his care. May he give you peace and strength and healing for Aria’s body as you take care of her. May he walk beside you as you seek to do his will each day and carry you if need be. Thank you for sharing the good news.

    Great news about pending discharge. We will certainly uphold you all in prayer, especially Aria, and pray for an awesome family time when she gets home. Praying also that the new drug will do all it is supposed to do. Jeremiah 30:17 “For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord.”
