Hope dawns!!!

Aria has gone 24 hours without a temp :D

Finally, the relief is huge and we are happy and hopefully this is progress.  She is heaps perker within herself and saying new words.  Last night it was ‘wiggle’ and ‘strong’.  She is back to being cute again, waving and blowing kisses to her poster her friend from daycare made.

Today has brought a bit of bad news.  Aria’s central line burst this morning.  There was a fault with it that made it ballon with fluid when you flushed it and it finally give way.  But that can be fixed. 

Also her blood sugar is still doing crazy things and we are waiting for answers and test results.

But we are so pleased she is better even the burst wiggle doesn’t bother us to much.

Thank you so much for your support and comments and texts.  It means a HUGE amount to us.

6pm UPDATE:  Aria’s temp has been great all day.  We are waiting for The Call from Surgery for Aria to come down and get her new Wiggle.  Hoping and praying it can go in the same spot as the current one and keep her veins nice and intact.

Poor Aria

These are two words that pretty much sum up today.  Poor Aria.  She was hot and flat all day and it is really sad to see.  She perked up briefly when me and Ashie arrived this morning but that was it.

 Her blood culture is still clear which would seem to point to a clear line.  But she has had really high temps two days running and it is a bit strange.  I just wish it would break soon :(

It is so hard watching her in such misery, and nothing we can do.  Can’t even give her panadol to cool her down.  This disease really really stinks.

Hamish went to work today and thankfully Poppa came in to give me a hand with the grandkids.  I am so blessed to have such great support.  Asher is 8 months old and I still haven’t had to do a full day in hospital with both kids.  How awesome is that!

Thanks for your support, we love reading the comments, thanks for checking in on us.

Aria is in hospital


Sad.  Last night Aria’s temp got up to 40 degrees overnight.  That is pretty bad.  She had been having little temps for a couple of days.  But 40 is way to high so we took her in first thing this morning.

As it turns out she has bronchitis and we are still waiting to rule out a line infection.  She is ok in herself.  Pretty hot and tired but not as sick as we have seen her previously at 40 degrees.

Hopefully we will be home tomorrow but I am not holding my breath.  Please pray for us and Miss Aria for a quick recovery.
