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.

new update

Just heard they have finished the switch. They tried to take him off the pump and he became unstable. They did an echo and he still has a small vsd. They are going to cool him down again, put him back on the pump and fix it. When they took him off the pump he went into pulmonary hypertension. They said they would place him on nitric after they fix the vsd and take him back off the pump. It will probably still be another hour and one-half before they're finished. Please keep praying. I'm worried. jc
