It’s time admit

It’s time to admit that things are still not right with Aria. We were hoping her flatness and lack of energy was her recovering from the PICU/sodium ordeal. But now she has had two good(ish) nights sleep and she is still the same. Plus her tummy is still big and uncomfortable.

We are pretty disappointed, on Monday morning things were looking better. She was much happier, her tummy was looking normal (61cm for those who like numbers like me). Today her tummy is back up to 66cm and big and sore looking.

It is terrible timing, Hamish’s parents are on holiday and my Dad and his wife are over to see us. Quality time family is difficult to get in a hospital environment.

Strangely I find myself pretty fine about the whole situation but then on the other hand I am completely gutted. I am only gutted because it means this situation isn’t over for Aria and I dread to think what is in store for her. She has been thru so much this week and there is still more to come including the idea opening her up. And Asher, finding care for him and it is so hard to leave him everytime though everyone loves to have him. But I miss him heaps.

But I not angry, grumpy, stressed and emotional like I used to be. My only angst is for my kids but that angst doesn’t lead to the list just mentioned. It is amazing what God can do.

Anyway – back to Aria. Her sodium today is 149! Yay, 140s is in the normal range. But watch this space, please pray she gets better.
