Upon arrival Dr D mentioned how good she looked from the last time she saw her in mid-April.
Maisie was super good standing for her xrays as we waited to discuss the tendon surgery, what would be involved and how long her recovery would take.
The xrays showed us something none of us were prepared for.... Maisie’s front coffin bones were resorbing, disintegrating. 1/3 to 1/2 of them were already gone. Gone!
We had just done xrays a few month ago and they were 100% there, how could this be? At this rate of resorption, she would have no coffin bone at all before spring. Imagine no bone from your ankle down to support your foot, this is what was going to happen.
I am sobbing as I write this because it hurts so badly and I know you are as shocked as we are.
We know she was met at heaven's door by her mother who tragically died of starvation when Maisie was only a few months old.
That mother and daughter are reunited, both whole with no pain is the bright light in such a sorrowful time.
Run pain free, our beautiful and sweet girl, run in paradise at your mom's side.
Together again, FOREVER
