Cheering for the kidneys - Aria MacDonald

Cheering for the kidneys

Go kidneys GO!!!  Aria is peeing HEAPS,  Great news.  Her urine output in around 4 per kilo per hour.  So almost double overnight.  She has about 7 kgs of fluid to get off so there is a long way to go but thankfully it appears things are getting into gear.

The paralytic medicine is off and we are seeing a bit of movement from her which is nice.  It has been awful to see her so still and unresponsive over the past couple of days.  One of her nurses said ‘Aria always has an opinion on something’  yes she does and always expresses it so we are pleased to see her hand move when we mess with her.  She is currently telling us NO with her hands.  Thankfully she isn’t fighting the vent and her BP is stable, which was the reason it was on.  So hopefully it can stay off..

Her vent settings are still high but she is improving.  The more fluid she has in her the harder it is to breathe.

Overall the message is she is over the worst of it and on the up hill run to good health.  Although her WBC is up a bit so we hope there is nothing fresh brewing.

Please would you take a moment to register to vote for the KIDS foundation to win a big cash donation.  This is the charity that supports our family so very well.  I feel bad because I have forgotten about it and May is nearly over SO PLEASE VOTE.  Will all the people that read Aria’s site we could totally win it for them.

Also Aria has a Facebook fan page you can join.

    Keep working hard little kidneys! These are the new ones I imagine. Hope the other organs are settling down and feeling at home in Aria’s precious little body.
