Today is Macey Elizabeth-Jean's birthday.  She is 7 years old.  She is our hero.  She still talks about the cards and gifts from all of our friends here in blogville.  You guys are super stars also.
Stella Rose and Momma

Macey and big brother Micah.

She has always had that big ole smile.

See her owl hat.

I am getting older.

She is part wolf also.

Many of you know Macey struggles with Lymphedema of her left leg.  Not much is known still about congenital lymphedema and the stats show only 1 in 740,000.00 children have it.  As I have said more than one time, very few doctors actually know how to treat this disease in children.  Her parents and provider are still working on the best plan for Macey and still fighting the insurance company.  In August it had been a year, that we noticed her foot and leg getting bigger. 

She handles it very well.  She still gets to do her dance, and tomorrow night she gets to cheer with the high school cheerleaders at her big brothers football game.  So life is pretty normal for her...except when it is not.  Shoes are a big problem, so it is hard for her when her sister gets cute sandals, and cowboy boots, and she wears flip flops.  It hurts our heart to see that make her sad.  BUT Macey is going to do just fine in the world, because she has all our love and support.  That is the best gift we can give her for her birthday.................Grandma Deb


  1. Happy Birthday sweetie

  2. Happy happy birthday, Macey! I know there are some cute shoes coming for you down the pipeline, as soon as you get stuff under control. Woohoo!

  3. You know - a trip to Michael's craft store might be called for - you can the most amazing stuff to make flip flops look super cute and dressy - it might make her feel very special to have a different pair of flip flop each day (they only cost a couple of dollars at Michael's) If you let us know what size she wears we would love to make her a special pair

  4. Happy Birthday to Miss Macey. She sure is a superhero in our eyes!

  15. Howdy mates. Happy Birthday Macey! Sending you slobbery kisses and hugs all the way from Down Under. We love your smile. No worries and love Stella and Rory xx

  16. Happy Birthday, sweet Macey!!! Our Mom is very jealous that you can wear flip flops ALL the time. She never gets to wear them because they never stay on her feet - she just walks right out of them. We bet you can find lots of ways to decorate those flip flops to match all your outfits. We hope the year ahead brings answers and much relief to that pretty sweetheart.
