We know what is wrong with Aria… - Aria MacDonald

We know what is wrong with Aria…

… it’s Swine Flu.

Tonight Anita was given the results of the virus swab, and the result says that Aria has swine flu.

That will explain why the anitbiotics weren’t having much effect.

Anita in her thoroughness was asking our Dr E the other day about swine flu. About how Aria would be treated if she caught it and if it was more dangerous to Aria because of her condition. Seems like those question were very relevant to this circumstances. Dr E suggested catching it now wouldn’t be the end of the world, better now than post transplant as in most of these illnesses.

We’re a bit shocked to hear the news, we have no idea where she caught it from or if the rest of us have it, or what this means for us in terms of quarintine etc…..

We are hoping that now we know its a virus and the worst of the fevers seem to have passed that we can bring her home again, maybe even tomorrow if we can twist the Dr’s arm a bit.

Please pray for our family, this admission has been a rough one.

Also pray we can still have our Sodium meeting on Monday, we don’t really want to have to put that off again either.

    Unbelievable. If she was going to get it certainly now is the better time to be getting it than later. And what incredible timing that you and Anita didn’t get sick at the same time. All things must, (they have to), be working together for good. Yes, you are in our prayers constantly.

    Wow, what a time you have had! I think the swine flu is definitely something to be cautious about. Since you, people in the S. Hemisphere are getting the worst of the swine flu first, I’m glad to hear that you’re healing now! America & Mexico had the swine flu first, but since we were headed into Spring, & now we’re in Summer, we haven’t had the worst of it yet. I hope all of you continue to get better, especially Aria, since she has other medical needs!

    It seems swine flu is not limited to just a handful of cases anymore, it’s pretty much on the loose! Good that you have all got through it, hope you continue to recover quickly now and Aria can get back home!

    Oh man, swine 🙁 that sucks so much for Aria and you guys. But like you said, definitely better for her to have it now than post-transplant. Will be praying you guys get well super soon and get to all be at home together.

  7. Samantha Sutherland says:

    Oh blow! Hang in there guys. Hope you get home soon. Just think of all the great antibodies Aria is making to fight this flu, she will be so much better off after transplant.

  8. Nicole says:

    Huge hugs to you guys! Certainly something you didn’t need 🙁 but like you said, better to get it now.

    Will be praying for Aria and you guys.

    Glad you guys have a diognosis now even if it is an undesired one. Will be praying that Aria is able to come home with you and ride the rest of it out at home. Take care.
