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.

Overwhelmed by all the thoughtful sentiments; overwhelmed by all the support from family, friends, and strangers; overwhelmed by all the pain and tears; overwhelmed by all the blessings we have been given. These are my thoughts today. Love you all, jc

Dear Greg, Juli, Maddie, Carter and Chloe
Just a note to tell you we remember...the excitement we had anticipating his arrival...the joy of seeing his first pictures...the anxiousness each day as we read his update looking for his numbers to be my breath was taken away the first time I saw him in Dallas and touched his little feet...the fervor with which we prayed over him in OKC and asked God to heal him...the sadness that shook our world when we learned it was not God's will for him to stay...we remember. You're in our hearts forever little Maverick and we will remember you. Our prayers and heartfelt thoughts are sent your way on this very special day. Love Dorraine, Chris, Hunter and Ethan Hudson
