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.

Hi Juli,
I'm so sorry that Maverick has gotten sick again. I hope that when you got back down to Dallas you found him moving back in the right direction. His road to recovery has been anything but a straight path. I'm just so sorry about all the emotional ups and downs you all have had to go through. I'll be thinking about you all and thinking about his taking no more detours.
We want you all back home - no more than you all want that, I'm sure. It was great to see you on Saturday. We've missed you.
Take care,
