T +8 Evening

Thank you all for your support after this morning's post - it means a lot.  When I saw Murray today he seemed a little better than yesterday so I am feeling more hopeful tonight that he is making progress.  His kidney function is still poor but he didn't require dialysis today.  They will do bloods at 6am (seriously how wrong is that) and then decide after that if he needs it.

Ashlea has had a great day.  She is almost up to full feeds and has only had two doses of pain medications today.  This evening I was hoping she would go to sleep so I could duck back over and visit Murray.  Of course she didn't like that plan so I decided that instead we would both duck over for a quick visit with Dad - their first time seeing each other in 8 days.

Just beautiful to see them both together, tears to my eyes.

I hope Murray's kidney starts behaving itself soon and Murray can go home with his family where he belongs x

What a great photo and Ashlea is looking fantastic. Hoping that Murray's kidney recovers and thinking also of you and how hard this must be on you. Wishing you all a restful night and continued improvement tomorrow...

I'm so glad you were able to do this Alison, for both of them - and for you.

Thrilled at Ashlea's awesome progress, and happy with Murray's slow & steady too.

Hope you all get a good night's sleep tonight, giving you strength to face whatever tomorrow may bring...

Wonderful post. And there's a lot to be hopeful in that pic - the body language, facial expressions....

clearly you can see he's saying

"hey lady, I said you could HAVE a kidney, not trade me a crap one"

In all seriousness this is a fabulous pic and one I think gives you the right to feel much more hopeful.

big love
Gina & family

What a wonderful photo!
What precious moments!
It's so good Ashlea is up and able to go visiting, and Murray is up to receiving a visit from Ashlea.
We'll continue praying for improvements for everyone and continued strength for you Alison.
Keep putting one foot in front of the other, trusting God to lead you along His pathway step by step as He gives you strength.
love and prayers

Alison, it's OK to be sad and angry. Rage at God He's big enough to take it. I know it doesn't feel like it at the moment but He promises not to give us more than we can bear. So I know that whatever the outcome you will get through this. As to what He's doing in this situation you'll probably never know this side of heaven but I can see that in all of this He is being honoured and glorified and ultimately that's what our lives are about - glorifying God. I know that doesn't even touch the pain and anguish you are experiencing at the moment but I hope that it may be a little comfort. I'm praying for you all and have been so grateful for the regular updates so that my prayers can be specific and timely. Thank you for your honesty in the blog, you are such a brave and amazing lady.

I love love love this photo! I gather from somethingyounsaid in another post that Ashlea is in Westmead Kids - is Murray next door? Hoping his kidney is doing better today.
