Daddy Cuddles! - Aria MacDonald

Daddy Cuddles!

Today Aria had another good day, she spent the day on the trach collar and did better than yesterday.

The highlight of my day however was just after her bath time when I got some good old fashioned Daddy cuddles. After her bath her bed is wet and needs changing. I offered her various options of how we could achieve this. I offered snuggles in the big seat, her wheelchair, rolling over in her bed or daddy cuddles. She elected to have daddy cuddles. So I picked her up and held her the same as I would hold Asher if I was holding him, a first since before transplant. As we stood there having some nice daddy/daughter time she gave me some kisses and nibbled on my chin. Definitely one of the nicest moments I’ve had for a long time.

Prayer points for the moment would be that we can get her onto her speaking valve for the trach, we can get her onto room air for her breathing, that temps stay away and she does lots and lots and lots of urine while she is not being dialysed.

    Cuddles with your daughter…very special; I agree. Makes me think of the same with my darling daughter, too. Glad to hear of the seemingly steady progress. Of course, we’ll continue to pray. Enjoyed sharing some special time with the rest of the family yesterday. Glad you could have some time away from the normal routine last night. cwb
