Closure - Aria MacDonald


Today marked the closure of the Sodium Drama.  The Starship had finished their investigation and had completed the report about the events that cause Aria’s sodium overdose.  We had a meeting today to read the report and their findings.  Thankfully the meeting couldn’t of gone any better and apart from one sticking point we are happy with their findings and policy changes.

There was an apology in writing and in person by the people at the meeting and we felt happy about that.  Of course it was hard and I did get a bit emotional at one point.   We are just so disappointed that this happened because Aria’s care at Starship has been really good and we are so thankful to everyone there.  It still hurts to remember how much Aria suffered and how horrible the event was for our family but we can now move on and forgive and forget.

This verse sums up how we have come to peace on the sodium drama and Aria’s illness in general

What time are good, be happy.  But when times are bad, consider this: God has made one as well as the other. Ecclesiastes 7:14

Why this have to happen to us?  Why was Aria born they way she is?  Why is her life so tough at times? What does her future hold?

Who knows?  Well God does and God had made things they way they are.  That is a huge source of comfort to us.  There were no mistakes or errors, everything is as He intended them to be.  And we will still praise Him because He is worthy.

Please keep praying for Aria and Hamish, they are still both under the weather.

    I KNOW it’s hard. It can be utterly devastating at times to ask all the “whys?”. But you are SO right. God does not make mistakes. He has a purpose and plan for EVERYTHING under the sun! Please know you all are being lifted up daily!!!!

    We love you!

    I’m glad to hear that you finally have closure! We humans don’t see the big picture God is painting, so it’s hard to understand the things He does sometimes, but it’s for our own good & He loves us!

    So wonderful you have closure now. One positive, although so hard to accept that it had to make Aria suffer more that she should have had to, and that is hopefully it will never happen to another child again.

    I find it nice and comforting most of the time to have the ‘why’ out of my hands. Losing control has probably been the best and most challenging thing for me to have achieved! Not knowing gives me hope though and makes me feel secure in knowing we are part of a bigger plan.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each
    time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

    Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t
    loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking
    issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers
    and both show the same results.

    Building this type of unit is the best way for
    a home gardener to get a closet garden set up that perfectly fits into the space they have.
    Seeds and seedling grow faster on blue grow lights. UFO LED lights
    use less power than other common grow lights, and UFO LED lighting creates less pollution as well.
