When is Aria going to transplant? - Aria MacDonald

When is Aria going to transplant?

We get this question a lot.  Which is fine because it is a perfectly reasonable question to ask.

 The answer:  We don’t know.

We don’t know because we are waiting on some results for some kidney tests we had done in October I think.  For one reason or another they have been delayed but hopefully we should get them some time early next year.

Also once we have these results and if it looks like we might go to transplant soonish then we will make an application to the Govt for funding for transplant.  Well we won’t, that fun job goes to Dr E!

Anyway Aria is well and good.  Today I found a Fisher Price doctors kit I used to play with when I was a kid.  We wondered if it was bad taste giving it to her to play with but she seems to like it.

Also we are hoping like mad to avoid a trip to day stay this week.  Aria’s iron was/is low and she might need a top up.  This take hours and hours and sitting around the hospital with a perfectly healthy Aria hooked up to a pump is hard work.  Anyway should find out on Tuesday.

Hamish and I have been married seven years today!  Yay!  We have survived the best and worst time in our lives together but we are still best buds.  Still more challenges and joys to come (particulary in the next month or so!!) but we face the future with confidence.   Anyway enough of the soppy stuff.

Thanks for checking in on us.

    Happy Wedding Anniversary!
    We all enjoyed looking at Arias photo album the other day with us all crowded around the computer to see.
    We continue to lift you all up in prayer to our faithful loving God. We read today Psalm 62 v8
    Trust in him at all times, Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge.

    Much love from us here in Japan.

    Martin, Sam, Raffie, Elijah, Georgie and Talitha.

    Just had to tell you that one of Jakes favorite toys for a while in the bath was Lara’s oxygen mask and tube from transplant – yuk! I cringed inside but he loved it and was quite funny so no, not in bad taste if Aria enjoys playing doctors!
