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.

Her babies

I was getting ready for bed the other night and found Chloe in the hall outside our bedroom door. She told me they wanted her to lay down with them. She also said, "I had to scratch one tummy, two tummies, three tummies!" She likes to have her tummy or her back scratched when she goes to bed.

She is just the cutest little girl ever! And Maddie...she is so great with her little sister! I love that Carter can entertain himself with that. You have great kids!
