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...

Merry Christmas!!!! :-) I just wanted to say that I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. We did most of our last night with David's parents because David has to work today. Next week for New Year's we will do Christmas with my parents. I hope everyone has a nice day. Last night we went to Maggiano's (a great Italian restaurant). We have gone for 3 years now at Christmas, so I guess it is becoming a tradition. We usually get all dressed up and go. I had to go out and buy a nice new outfit (all my dress clothes no longer fit). I thought I would take advantage of being dressed up to get a picture of the baby bump.. I told my mom I looked pretty, but like a big red Christmas ball. :-) All in all, it was a good night! We even got some gifts for Maxton. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! You look very beautiful--next year Maxton will have to join you for dinner!!

Many continued prayers for your son, that he is getting stronger with each passing day. I hope 2009 will be a great year for Maxton.
