Macy Mae’s Story

Site created on March 5, 2019

Macy Mae Bennett was born 12/6/19  to Shannon and Kyle Bennett. 18 hours after birth a significant heart murmur was discovered, which led to the discovery that she was born with Tetrology of Fallot. The family was devastated by this news as the doctors prepared us for what lie ahead for our sweet girl! Surgery was initially scheduled for April, but Macy let her mommy know she was ready earlier and her surgery was March 1st, 2 months sooner! There have been people praying all over  the country and multiple families that are trying to communicate progress through multiple platforms. Macy will need another surgery, and we know Shannon and Kyle could use all the love and support they can get. Thank you all for the outpouring of love, prayers, and support for sweet Macy Mae❤️

Journal entry by Shannon Bennett

Hey everyone! 
Im sorry I haven’t been on to update in awhile but 3 kids, a husband, dog and ballet took over lol! Macy is doing really well, she just went through a growth spurt and is teething! Sloooooww dowwwwn!! It’s almost as if this condition has not effected her at all! 
Since things have calmed down I’ll have to admit all the emotion, all the stress caught up with Kyle and I. Kyle lost his job a couple weeks ago due to him getting the stomach bug and had to leave so they let him go :/. So of course that doesn’t help the stress right?? But the line from Hillsong’s Ocean song “Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders” really hits home with me. I just have been trying to give everything to Him and practice some self care also because I’ve got little hearts depending on me!
We go back to the cardiologist next month and I’m hoping we have no episodes until then! Thank you for the prayers! God is so good!
