CVL Wednesday? - Aria MacDonald

CVL Wednesday?

Ok so we didn’t really expect it to happen today but we are hoping it will tomorrow. Aria is on the acute list for surgery tomorrow.  But it does mean she will get bumped for emergency or more critical cases. 

Today was ok, again we lost another luer and again she had to have a new one put in.  But this time we gave her some stuff that makes her a bit sleepy and lets her forget.  To be honest it weirds me out a bit but it made a big difference and it wasn’t nearly as tramatic for her.  The docs use this elastic thing which they tighten around her arm to make the vein stand out.  Yesterday she screamed when she saw it today she picked it up and asked me to put it on.  I couldn’t figure it out and ask her if we should get a doctor to do and and she nodded!!!!  So I did and the doc came in and she didn’t freak out.

Hamish and I asked if we could take some of that magic stuff home with us.  Sam- that will help us forget the last week!!

Anyway so CLV tomorrow and home on Thursday?  I hope so.  We are so tired and miss being home together.

    HI Anita
    Pleased you decided to go ahead and give ‘it’ to Aria. I think it will pay off in the long run. And I agree parents should be aloud some too!

    I think anything that makes it less traumatic for you all is good. And really in the scheme of all the toxic meds we have to give our kids its not one of the major’s! Sounds aweful to say that but Aria’s mental wellbeing and yours is more important.

    Will be hoping you have your ‘family reunion’ at home very very soon.
