Our son Maxton was diagnosed with left-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) at his 19 week ultrasound. Maxton was born on 3/3/09 at Vanderbilt University. He fought hard for 18 days but earned his wings on 3/21/09. Maxton was an inspiration to many during his brief time on earth and has forever changed our lives. If your child is diagnosed with CDH, please feel free to contact us. Maxton may no longer live here on earth, but he will live forever in our hearts...

10 weeks!

So Maxton will be here in 10 short weeks. It's pretty scary to think about how much is going to change between now and then, let alone thinking about what will happen after. I've been told that I will be induced around 39 weeks, so that is why it is 10 weeks and not 11. I am starting to feel prepared but it is also becoming harder for me not think constantly be consumed by thinking/worrying/praying for Max. I am trying to stop being fearful and remember that God is in control- I am not in control. There is nothing that I can do to change the outcome that God has planned. I'm trying to remain strong and keep my faith that and remember that Max is a perfect gift from God that was designed especially for David and I. 10 weeks... ah!!
