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.

Me with my ice cream

Ok, the ice cream pics need an explanation. We've been to the big W and I did alot of shopping. The ice cream bars the kids have were free - I had some good coupons. The Starbucks ice cream I have - caramel macchiato - is yummy and was only around 45 cents from a coupon in last Sunday's paper. So, we sat outside this evening and had some ice cream. The "cool front" that came in left the temperature in the low 90's today, and after the 100+ weather the past several day, it felt pretty pleasant outside this evening. I just had to brag a little about my deals :)
