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.

First Day of School

It's hard to believe we have a seventh grader and a third grader. They were ready to go this morning.
Here we are at the school. I take this same picture every year. The kids tolerated it pretty well.

Carter at his desk - ready for the day.
Maddie at her locker. Notice the wrapping paper on the door for decoration.

Where was Chloe? She was at home snoozing. Greg stayed home so she could sleep a little later while I took the kids to school. I took this after I got back. We had a good day together. We didn't go to Benedict Street today - maybe Friday.
The kids both had a good day at school. We didn't get the results from Maddie's biopsy today. When I called they said they weren't in yet and they would call me back on Friday. Just a quick post for today. More later. Love you all, jc
