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.

More birthday pics

Guess where she wanted to go for breakfast on her birthday? Yes, we're at Starbucks. She got a Starbucks card as a birthday gift and was very excited. I got her something different this time though and she wasn't too thrilled with it - she said, "it has too much sugah." I didn't think there was such a thing.

Of course I didn't mind going and she had to take a picture of me if I was taking one of her.
Grandma and Papaw came over for cake the evening of her "real" birthday.

Here are a few more birthday pics - from her "real" birthday as opposed to her "fake" birthday. That's what she kept asking about the day of the party with her friends, "Is this my real birthday or my fake birthday?"

She was very tired at the end of the day and passed out with her heating pad and her baby.
