Maggi's been doing great lately!! Her next surgery should be in June sometime. Please keep her in your prayers and keep your fingers crossed for her!!
Two years after nearly losing our little girl to a severe mold exposure in our home, she's bright-eyed, happy and healthy!! Celebrate with us!!
Maggi has been doing GREAT recently! She’s been doing so well in her classes, hasn’t been sick and has been showing more and mroe personality daily! We couldn’t be more proud!
Her next rod lengthening surgery should be in June. Dr. Devito told us last time that he should be able to get one more lengthening out of this rod before having to replace it. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that that is the case this time, and he doesn’t have to replace the whole rod. He will, however, be prepared to replace it if need be. Please keep her in your prayers!
We’re looking forward to getting her back in the poo this summer… in the evenings when it’s not so hot and sunny of course. Hoping the boys get to come spend time with her and swim with her, too.
Thank you all for your continued support and prayers! We love you all!! Big things on the horizon!!
Maggi has been through skull/brain surgery, multiple spine surgeries, oral surgery, rota virus, respiratory infections, and mold exposure… but she’s made it through them all! To say she’s a “miracle child” would be an understatement.
The recent mold exposure was probably the worst thing we’ve had to deal with. We were all living in a home that was highly infested with multiple types of mold including the black toxic kind. Maggi’s respiratory system was compromised even more than usual due to the high levels of mold in the house. April 17, 2011 we took Maggi to the hospital because she was exhibiting signs of a stroke (which we later found out was Bell’s Palsy)… she spent her 6th birthday in the hospital at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. During that time, Dr. Robyn Levy came to see Maggi. She could smell mold, and that lead to us having our home tested for mold.
Now, we are in a legal battle over the home. We would love it if you could go to our mold case website and sign the guestbook to show support for Maggi, our family, and the fact that we have all survived a horrible ordeal.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAGGI!!!
Hi Friends! Hope you are all well! =)
The past few months have been very busy and hectic around the Blair house… Hope you didn’t think we forgot about you! We’ve had lots going on including Christmas, and Maggi has started making new noises!!
Although we haven’t been able to spend “Christmas” with the boys yet, we did have a little Christmastime with Maggi. We cooked a small dinner and let Maggi open a few gifts. It was fun, and Maggi was SO cute in her Christmas outfit! She got a whole bunch of new babies to play with as well as some developmental toys to help her with therapy.
Maggi has also lost another tooth since last post, bringing the total lost up to 4 now! She’s getting the new teeth in, and there are more loose, too. We just have to watch and make sure she doesn’t swallow any!
Maggi has also been making new noises!! She’s been wiggling her tongue around in her mouth for a few years now, like she’s trying to say something. A couple of weeks ago, she started laughing while she was wiggling her tongue and “nu-nu-nu-nu-nu-nu” came out! Patrick looked at her and said, “Say that again! Nu-nu-nu-nu-nu-nu!” Of course, it didn’t happen, because we WANTED it to happen. =) However, she began to do it more and more until it became a habit. After many attempts to get it on camera, we FINALLY got her doing it!! Enjoy the video below and God Bless you all!!
