She is now in heaven, a real angel...
From the Tallahassee Newspaper:
2-year-old McKenzie Bailey dies after long battle with illnessMcKenzie Bailey touched everyone that she met.
She was a 2-year-old that meant more to her family, friends, and doctors than she would she ever know.
McKenzie had neonatal Marfan syndrome, a disorder of the connective tissue. Her tissue was very flexible, which made her heart and lungs much larger than average. Her chest cavity was so large that her lungs have moved her heart to her lower right abdomen.
McKenzie died Wednesday afternoon at Shands Hospital in Gainesville after a rough few weeks of another hospital admittance.
She might have lost her battle, but those that knew the little girl that loved to play and give kisses will always have her in their heart.
"She has taught me to cherish every moment you have," said McKenzie's mother, Jennifer Bailey. "I have no regrets, I would do it all over again if I could."
"I am going to miss her smile and her kisses. She loved to give kisses," Jennifer said, who is now home with her family.
Jennifer and her husband, Ashley fought hard for their only child.
In January, the Baileys asked the Tallahassee community for help to find adequate transportation that would get McKenzie to Johns Hopkins, where there was a doctor willing to do the surgery she needed.
But McKenzie was never able to get to Baltimore. Her health was just too risky for transportation.
Since January, her health had its ups and downs with constant doctor and hospital visits.
