Prayers for Aria

Prayers for Aria please. Looks likes she has caught the cold that has been in our house this week. Inevitable I guess but still a shame.

Overnight we had to increase her oxygen flow to 2 litres up from .5 litres. She started breathing harder and spiked a temp to the dreaded 38.5 C. Thankfully her homecare nurse was due to come at 8am for blood draws and an assessment. She called the team and at this stage we will watch her at home but if we have to increase her o2 or she spikes another temp we have to call.

Please pray we have seen the worst of this cold and Aria’s condition improves rather than spirals down into something more menacing.

While we knew that this was going to happen sometime and with fall/winter approaching it was going to happen sooner rather than later, we were really enjoying our nice smooth run since discharge. It’s a bit frustrating to lose ground with her oxygen requirements (even temporarily) and with her sleeping through the nights but we’ll take her having a little cold over the other ‘big nasties’ that can effect post-transplant kids.

Thanks again to all our prayer warriors, your a HUGE part of Team Aria!!

UPDATE: THANK YOU for praying! We have been able to turn down Aria’s o2 to 1 litre this afternoon and she is sounding heaps less rattly. Happy and playing this afternoon. Please pray for our night- that it might be filled with sleep for everyone.

    Can so identify with this, having experienced similar anxiety recently… praying for a really quick recovery for her…and peace for you all at this time… when your heart stops, and it feels like it’s in your throat, and you wonder what’s next, have faith…one day at a time…

    We have what sounds like the same bug cough/cold running ramp in New Zealand also at the moment. Aria will get over it soon and build up her immunity to it…….All the very best….

    Praying that nasty cold gets better soon. How are you feeling Anita? We are still suffering after shocks from our 7.1 earthquake on Saturday morning so are very stressed here in Ch-ch. Could do with some prayers also please. Blessings, Judy.
