An unwelcome interruption to our babymoon - Aria MacDonald

An unwelcome interruption to our babymoon

Yes the MacDonalds are on their babymoon.  The time after a baby is born where you are enjoying the new life that has entered your world!  We didn’t get one with Aria so this one is extra special.

But our blissful existence was interupted yesterday when Aria ended up in Starship!  NO NO NO!!!  We took her to an emergency doctor because she got a bump on the head we wanted to be checked.    But the Doc commented on her cough and said she needed antibiotics.  Shock horror. Antibiotics for Aria can only be given by IV so it needs at least one night in hospital if not more.  We thought her cough was fine but didn’t want to mess with the doctors advice. 

So Hamish and Aria packed up and went in and we all felt rather glum.  But great news Aria was seen by our team and declared fit and free to go within a few hours.  We normally only take Aria to our GP who is fully aware of Aria’s condition since she was first  diagnosed and keeps up to date with the goings on in her life.  We think the Emergency Doc was playing it very safe as Aria is such a special and rare case.  Still it is a small world cause this Doc knew Dr E. 

So much for taking a break hey!  Never mind a great outcome none that less, rather this Tuesday than next!
