Haere Mai… - Aria MacDonald

Haere Mai…

…and welcome to 26B. Darn it. In case you missed yesterdays post Miss Aria is not well and we are back at Starship. Not sure what is wrong.

I bravely told the ED Reg to tell the Gastro Consultant it was a gut infection rather than a line infection and what antibiotics we normally use. I told her we have only been wrong once. Perhaps I am getting to big for my boots but no bugs have grown off her line yet so we might be right. They should have said Hello by now.

We spent (or is that wasted?) a beautiful sunny day in ED yesterday until finally getting up to 26B at about 4pm. We were greeted at the door by one of the nurses Claire singing Haere Mai to us. Props/big ups/points for her really – two grumpy parents who are about to walk down the hallway of doom to find out which shoebox they are going to spend the next week in are a tough crowd – but she managed to make us smile. A sense of humour should be compulsory for any paeds professional.

Anyway the latest text from Hamish/Daddy Bear (the name another 26B nurse gave him yesterday – they are a funny lot those nurses) is that Aria is perky and demanding walks and her temp is below 38. A promising start.

    Wow, I can’t beleive they still make you guys wait in ED. Especially for that long! A GSOH should be compulsory for ALL medical professionals. I’ll never forget the young jewish doctor who managed to get me to smile the first time my second son had to be readmitted with serious respitory problems. Its a pity some of them forget how much difference they can make.

    Fingers crossed for a short stay this time.
