This is our Macey Elizabeth

She is mad.

She is funny.

She is charming.

She is imaginative.

Last week when mom dropped her and her sister off at dance class her big sister noticed that Macey's left foot was really swollen.  So big that she could not wear her dance shoes.  The next day her Momma took her to the Dr. 

Overnight the swelling had traveled up the calf of her leg.  The Dr. heard a heart murmur that was never heard before in her checkups...a murmur in children is sometimes just an oddity that they will outgrow, or it can be a symptom of something else going on.  With the weird swelling ....well it caused us concern.  Yesterday she had some bloodwork done, and is now on the list to see the Ped Cardio guy at the University Hospital.....not for three weeks though......there must be a lot of kids who need to see this guy.  

The swelling is still there, and momma told her that her foot looked like one of the little monsters on Where the Wild Things Are...Macey laughed but I fink she is real tired of everyone looking at her foot and leg all the time. 

We know the Lord looks out for little children, but we sure could use your thoughts and prayers also, every little word can help.

  10. OH NO!!!

We have you all in our prayers and will wait anxiously with you until you see the heart Dr.

  16. Crikey ... More bad news in Blogville! Beautiful Macey .... Mum and I will be thinking of you and praying that all will be well for you real soon. I will run on the beach for you Macey and dream that you are running with me. 3 weeks ... Such a long time to wait! Love and cuddles!

  17. You've got ours. We're sending the POTP and healing vibes, too!

  18. Poor thing! We'll keep our paws crossed that the swelling goes down real soon. When we get weird swellings, it's usually because something weird bit us. Tell her not to let weird things bite her anymore!

  19. Macey, we're sending you heaps of slobbery love. All paws crossed here for you sweetie pie. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  20. Hi there, I know how scary it can be when one of our grands is sick-especially with the swelling. Know that I will be praying for Macey and for wisdom for the dr's. I love that book! Also, praying for peace for all those who love her.
    Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

  21. Sending her lots of good thoughts and best wishes for not-bad news!

  22. Oh dear, we sure hope this isn't anything serious! She is way to cute to have big troubles. We'll cross our paws that it is something easily fixed!!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  23. Will definitely keep Macey in my prayers and thoughts. Really concerned about that swelling and how fast it travelled. Please keep us all updated.

  24. We will definitely keep her in our prayers. Mom likes her name because Macy is also her daughters name.

    Aroo to you,

  25. We have Macey on our prayer list too.
    She is sooo adorables!
    Its a good thing that she gets to see a "specialist".
    It seems regular doctors don't even know how to look in our noses anymore or ears. Now there are nose doctors.. ear doctors, heart doctors, belly ache doctors , muscle and leg doctors.,. foot doctors,, So were glad she will see a special doctor cause the others don't know anything.
    So here come the prayers, and she will be better soon!!

  26. Macey Elizabeth is really beautiful. We'll keep her in our prayers, and sending lots and lots of healing and healthy vibes for this very special cutie!!

  27. We are sending our prayers and good thoughts to Macey and her family. We'll even throw in some pug snorts.

  28. Oh no I am so sorry to hear this we hope she gets beter soon

  29. We have our paws crossed tight for your little Macey. Our mom gets frustrated at having to wait so long to see a specialist when something is clearly wrong right now.

  30. Hi Stella. I hope the Doctors get to the bottom of what's going on with Macey and can help get that swelling down. We'll keep her in our thoughts and send lots of good pug juju her way.
