Stealing hearts near and far...





Little Ashley Mayercak from church saw the photos of Maddie after her accident on facebook and immediately burst out crying, she was so upset.   She just had to come see her in person and show her love.


She asked her Mom if she could get Maddie a gift and make a card.  She did and brought it over yesterday to visit with her.  Maddie steals everyone's heart.  She is our church "mascot".  Everyone just loves her from young to old.


Giving Savanna kisses


Laying around with Savanna, just chilling.


We find such joy being with her.  I talk to her and massage her areas that aren't bruised (what few there are) while Larry searches the internet for more helps on how to care for dogs who have fractured spines.  


Love, love, love her kisses!


Daddy tucks me in and makes such I'm comfy.


Mason and Jacob Mayercak came over to visit Maddie too.

Please keep praying!  Maddie has been pretty sedate most of the time as she is on Tramadol the majority of the time.  When she first wakes up or after it wears off she is most active.  She is doing well all things considered but we have to keep her still so that the fracture can heal.  This is a challenge.  She wants to get up yet if she did it would be very painful and we have to watch her carefully.  Friday she will experience two major things.  The drain will be taken out of her incisions.  Also, she will be put on steroids.

We are so grateful for all the prayers on her behalf.  Yesterday we noticed that Maddie has over 100 friends on facebook, in fact as of the time I write this she has 126! 

In faith, we see our little Maddie standing on her own four legs again in four weeks!  We won't stop believing!

My Stars class prayed for her last night - so now I've got 14+ animal-loving 3rd-5th grade girls on it, too :o).
