Aria is HOME! - Aria MacDonald

Aria is HOME!

Our little family all sleeps under the same roof tonight!

Aria is home AND once again it appears this hospital admission has IMPROVED her health. She is chatty and happier AND standing heaps without us promoting her. She put on quite a show for our home care nurse this evening, standing up and turning around even. It was a hoot.

So there is a new unofficial diagnosis of asthma for Miss Aria. She is on a higher dose of steroids and nebuliser breathing treatments and this seems to be really helping her. As there is no family history of asthma we are hoping she will grow out of it and it is secondary to her lung disease from being intubated for so long.

Also we know that Pseudomonas in her lungs still. We were hoping that it was gone but it has likely colonised in her lungs. BUT she is on an strong antibiotic that she inhales as another breathing treatment. So we are praying that this will finally knock the Pseudomonas on the head.

Asher is very pleased to have his sister home. He struggled a bit with her and one of us being in hospital. We feel pretty sad about that. But Aria actually coped really well and was pretty happy there. But she was keen to get home when we were released.

All and all a two night admission is a pretty good deal and we have made progress with Aria’s treatment. Thankfully it had nothing to do with the function of her transplant organs or anything long term to be concerned about.

    Love it!!! Sounds like this admission may have been a blessing in disguise. Some specific Prayer points would be great. My children love to pray specific things for Aria and you all as it helps them to focus on others who are in different and sometimes worse places than they are.
    Praying for you all and loving the progress xx

    So glad you are all together again. I guess Green Dolly will be relieved this latest episode is over! Aria, we send you lots of love and a kiss for you and one for Asher. Would you please give him the kiss we sent for him OK?

    What super duper news, Princess Aria, you never cease to amaze us. She goes in for a quick visit to get on top of a prob & nip it in the bud only to gain MORE progress in the progress she was making with mobility. What more surprises is she going to pull outta the hat?
    Sad abt the asthma but at least it can be treated & controlled & hopefully not hold her back & she does grow out of it.

    Great you are all under the same roof again & little Asher can settle again

    You guys are awesome
