Kavanagh Strong

In the early morning hours of October 11th, Bailey woke up gasping for air and coughing up blood. After a trip to the ER and having an abnormal chest X-ray and difficulty breathing, she was rushed to Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in Tacoma and has been there since. The fluid in her lungs ended up being blood. While her team of doctors are doing their best to diagnose her (and having a difficult time doing so), we do know that the Kavanagh Family has a long road ahead of them. One diagnosis that they are leaning toward is
Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis, but that can only be made after ruling every other possibility out. Stephanie and Matt are both taking time off from work right now while they try to figure out what is happening. They will need to adjust to an entire new lifestyle. Stephanie will likely need to take a leave of absence from work, so they will have daily expenses to take care of. They will also need to make a trip to Orange County, CA to see a Rheumatologist Expert in the near future. Bailey is a very strong little girl with an amazing personality and we are all fighting for her. ❤️ #keepbaileycray
