Baby Maverick

This blog was created to keep family and friends updated on what's going on with the pregnancy, birth, and surgical plan for Maverick. We'll also be able to keep everyone updated during his surgery and recovery and hopefully be able to show you some cute pictures of him, Maddie, Carter and Chloe along the way.

This was the original intent; however, when we started this blog we had no idea the twists and turns our lives would take. Our sweet baby Maverick was born September 12, 2008 with Transposition of the Great Arteries, ASD, and VSD. We expected to have a baby boy to bring home three to four weeks after his surgery. He had numerous complications after his arterial switch and fought through many that would have taken the life from an adult. He passed away February 24, 2009 - without ever coming home.

This blog is now a place I share my feelings, work through the grief, remember Maverick, and try to make sense out of our life without him. I hope in doing so I am giving a name and a face to babies everywhere born with congenital heart defects.

Getting Closer!

Well, the time is almost here. My last shift at Mediflight was on Friday - just want to say thanks to all my friends at work and my non-work friends for keeping me sane throughout this pregnancy. I don't know what I would've done without you all. You keep me laughing.

My mom and Brown are coming to Shawnee today. I'll be glad to see them. I'm still trying to get all the little things finished before we leave tomorrow. I've been making calls to confirm things, paying bills, etc. I still have to pack!!

I still don't have a time for the induction. I placed a call to the Dr's office yesterday, so hopefully I'll hear something today.

That's all for now. I'll keep you updated!
