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...

Maxton's arrival

First let me say this is Ashley's dad and we appreciate all the prayers and concerns for Maxton. May God Bless You. Maxton arrived in this world at 11:30pm 3-3-09. He weighed in at 8 pounds 11 ounces. As of this blog he was being examined. Everything went fine. Ashley is resting comfortably. I will update you tomorrow. Again from our family thanks for everything!
