Hello. My name is Tanya Crane and I am the Auntie to an awesome little kiddo. His name is Phoenix Vincent McLeod. He will be turning 1 on January 18, 2016. He went to the doctor in Fox Creek on January5, 2016 and was diagnosed with bronchitis. He later got worse and was taken into emergency on January 7, 2016. While he in there, it was decided he needed to head to Edmonton by ambulance. They prepped him for his journey by setting up IV's, a breathing machine, a catheter and sedated him. Upon arriving at the Stollery, it was decided it was in his best interest to remain sedated. Since he has been there he has had two bad turns. The worse case scenarios are now in place in a matter of hours. Phoenix had to be put on a different breathing machine, 4 IV's, a catheter, a machine that is taking his blood from his heart and running it through a carbon filter and back in. This is doing the job of his lungs so they can have a much needed rest. He is on meds to keep him paralyzed and in doing so his vitals improved.  Phoenix has a long journey to recovery and his odds of pulling through are not what we like to hear...just over 50%..
   On this journey, his parents, Dara McLeod and Andy Yule, would like to stay by his side but due to lack of funds...they may have to leave him in Edmonton. I have their daughter, Helena, 5, with me so they don't have that worry. All funds raised will go to accommodation, food and bills, if need be. Anything left over will be donated to the Stollery in Phoenix's name.
   Our family would be so grateful for your help. This little guy always puts a smile on your face and makes you giggle! Please help us take the load of worry off of Dara and Andy, so they can concentrate on baby Phoenix!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Thought I would do one last update on the past year with Phoenix. This year has been busy. Phoenix had doctor appointments in Edmonton for check ups and to make sure there was no developmental delay from being under so long. Thankfully, he is a busy, thriving, young boy that is full of laughs and character!! He still gets sick frequently and has issues with his breathing. So this little man is on numerous puffers to help with airways and such. He was hospitalized for a night not long ago as they were keeping a close watch on him as he had bronchitis again. This put a scare into our family. We seem to worry every time he is ill, but that was the worst so far. All turned out okay. He was released after one night, but had to be at the hospital 3 times a day for treatment for a couple days. Dara is going to be looking into why he seems to get weezy every time he is outside. Seems like he has an off day the next day, a little under the weather.

Our family is so thankful for all the help we received and thoughts and prayers when Phoenix was in the hospital, almost a year from now. He is our little fighter. He makes us laugh every day. We cherish every moment with this silly little man who can put a smile on anyones face :) We know that your prayers helped him pull through and gave him strength. We are beyond thankful to every single one of you!!

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!! All the best in the New Year!! May you stay safe during your travels. Hug and cherish every moment. Thank you again from the bottom of hearts <3

I will keep this page open and update you all on the outcome. He will have many check ups at the Stollery in the next while. But we are so happy Phoenix fought a fight that was not looking well. Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers <3

Today was a good day! Phoenix got his feeding tube out today! Yesterday they removed his IV from his head. So he is officially tube and machine free!! He has an appointment with the lung specialist next Friday. We are hoping they can figure out what happened so this does not happen again.

On behalf of Dara & Andy, Dad and Vyola, the kids and Dale and myself, we thank you for your thoughts and prayers. They truly helped our handsome little
Mommy and Phoenix

TODAY PHOENIX TURNED ONE!! Happy First Birthday to a strong little man <3

Phoenix has been taken off alot of things and is doing fairly well. He is down to 2 IV's, breathing tube is gone, meds are being decreased and is awake abit. Showing his Mommy his beautiful eyes :) He is a little congested this morning and is on oxygen through a nose tube. A lung specialist is coming in today and hopefully find out some answers as to why he has always had issues with breathing since he was born. Fingers crossed they keep digging until answers are found. We are all so happy one how he is getting better each day!

Thank you so much from all of our family for your thoughts and prayers. And to those who allowed family to be by his side at this time.
