A cute Aria story… - Aria MacDonald

A cute Aria story…

Now I know you all want to hear the cute Aria story, but first I’ll give a quick status update as to her current health. For those just tuning in she is in hospital tonight (and for more nights to come, how many will depend on what exactly is bothering her) with what may be a pneumonia or maybe just a virus. Her breathing has become quite laboured and she needs some extra support and treatment that only the hospital can provide.

They are being pretty aggressive with the treatment, breathing treatments every 2 hours, doses of steroids and strong antibiotics just in case it is the dreaded Pseudomonas rearing its ugly head again. Please pray this combination gets Aria well again and that there won’t be too much lost ground in terms of getting Aria oxygen free again. Anita is staying with her tonight and hopefully there will be sleep involved for everyone although 2 hourly treatments may make that challenging, please pray for sleep!

Now for the cute story: Asher came into hospital with Anita this afternoon to do the night shift. Asher being his normal boisterous 2 year old self was being LOUD. After taking him on little errands with me to try and keep him occupied it was time to give the ward a break and time for Asher to go. My cunning plan was to take Asher down to the zoo to tire him out so he’ll go to sleep well tonight, but I didn’t want Aria to know just in case she got jealous. Now when it came time to leave Asher was reluctant to go, he loves being with Aria in hospital and always misses her when she’s there, so Anita told him that I was going to take him somewhere else fun to get him to want to leave. Aria almost immediately says “Asher go zoo”, excited that Asher might have the opportunity to go to one of Aria’s favourite places. Again Aria amazes us with her generosity of spirit and love for our family. After having a fairly tough day, she still wants Asher to have good times. Love that girl to bits!

    Wow Aria is now seen as a VIP….which she is anyhow….to jump all the red tape of A&E or ER.
    Seems when they know their sweet Aria is coming back to ‘visit’ they all spring into action & all hands on deck to help her (& you Mum & Dad).

    Had to laugh tho at her suggesting where to take Asher for fun & distraction away from his bleoved sister.
    Hamish & Anita you have an awesome couple of little ones there.
    Bless you all
