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.

Kids playing

Here are the kids playing yesterday. Kirk dressed up, the girls put on their army shirts, and C-man just stayed in his regular clothes. The girls came into the kitchen with blue sparkly stuff under their eyes before they went outside. I asked Maddie what it was. Want to take a guess? Nailpolish. I let her know that taking it off would be stinky and the fumes might hurt their eyes and noses. Then I dismissed them outside - that was dealt with later. They played for quite a while and had fun. The polish came off without many complaints, but that will probably be the last time they decide to do that. It does look pretty cute, though.
