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.

not quite finished

Well, I thought they were finished. They had a persistent bleed from one of the coronary artery attachment spots so they put Maverick back on the pump to fix it. Dr. Mendeloff thinks it's fixed and they're taking Mav back off the pump. We'll see how it goes. It's been a long day for all of us. Say a prayer that this area is fixed and that he'll do fine coming off the pump - and I'm sure the OR staff need our prayers as well. Thanks - jc

I've been thinking of you and praying for all of you all day!! No stopping now!! Luke 9:11 tells us "...He healed those who needed healing." Maverick will be healed, my friend! It sounds like he has a wonderful surgeon, and I know he has The Great Physician! - He's in good hands! Sending a hug and more prayers, Gaynell
