Words - Aria MacDonald


Words are really powerful.  Particularly in our situation.

Hamish posed a statement as a question to the surgeon today, along the lines of ‘so she is doing well…..?’  He said ‘yes’ and then qualified his statement with ‘actually she is doing remarkably well’.

First thing Friday morning after they got her stable his first words of advice to us on rounds was ‘Pray’  Aria needed prayer.  You- friends, family, blog readers prayed and God heard and answered.

Aria is down to one pressor med at a low dose and her blood pressure is doing really well.  We have been able to wean her vent settings regularly.  Today we are giving her a med to help her pee to shift the 3 litres of fluid she was giving on the day she tanked.  Once we shift the fluid on her chest her lungs will be able to work better and hopefully we can remove the ventilator.  It will take a couple of days.

We have cultured a bug in her lungs that she hasn’t had before but is naturally quite resistant.  But it is sensitive to three ABX and the Infectious Diseases team seem confident they can knock it on the head.  Kinda of thankful it isn’t her Pseudomonas back.  And it means they can take her off the other ABX they had her on.

Still though, it makes ZERO sense that she has recovered so quickly given her ZERO immune system even on the right ABX.  But when you factor the power of God into this it makes TOTAL sense.

Words are really powerful.  Thank you to everyone who left a comment or sent us a private message.  Thank you to all who offered up words to God.  They are the most powerful of them all.  Please keep praying, we are winning a battle but there still is a great war to fight.

    I learned something new today. God has put crosses in each of us. Seriously He has! There is a protein molecule called laminin, & when you look at it through a microscope…it’s in the shape of a cross. It’s the protein that holds our bodies together. What does this have to do with your blog post? Well, it means God is in us, and He IS there even when we can’t see Him. God is in Aria too, & whether she knows it or not, she has been an amazing example of God’s love. She is a living, & breathing miracle whom God fashioned with His own hands. He loves her, & He loves you too. Google ‘laminin’ sometime, & see what you get. Have a great day! God Bless!

    I’m so grateful and thankful to hear this post this morning. I am always in awe of the power of prayer and the strength in Aria of spirit. I’m sure Aria will be off the ventilater and well for her big birthday. Anita and Hamish, you can breathe out a little now and hold each other close knowing that you are doing everything possible for your beautiful little girl.
