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.

A day at Pops

This pic is dark and I can't lighten it up, but you get the general idea. This is the big pop bottle sculpture in the front of Pops. The kids and I went with our friends, the Mays. The place is called "Pops" and is on the historic Route 66 in Arcadia, Ok. It's really a convenience store with a diner on one end. They have hundreds of different kinds of soda pop in bottles. The kids loved it. The food was ok, but it was worth the drive for the fun. We did this before the blood drive.
