3 year old Madeline has been fighting a battle with a rare blood disease Blue Rubber Bleb Nervus Syndrom her whole life. Her family has been trying to keep it managed with procedures and constant doctors visits.
However, last friday things made a turn for the worst when Madeline's mom recieved a phone call from daycare that she was not doing well. They rushed to the ER however the vascular malformation on her leg had gotten much bigger. The doctors did not consider the savarity of Madeline's condition and only treated her with Tylenol all night. Poor Madeline was in pain crying all night. The next morning she had gone into spetic shock and had to be air lifted to the Children's Hospital in Milwaukee, where they stabilized her with antibotics. Even though she was stable her leg kept getting bigger and bruising all over. After an MRI later that night, the doctors decided to perform emergency surgery and were not sure if Madeline would be able to keep her leg.
Thankfully the doctors were able to remove the infected area along with most of vascular malformation, muscle and dead skin. However Madeline is still on a ventilator and fighting for her life.
Please keep her in your prayers and we ask if you can contribute something to help the Smuzs family with some of Madeline's Medical expenses.
