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...

Pics

I decided that I had to come home and get some rest. I know Max will be trying to get some rest tonight too. He hasn't really had an episode since 5, so hopefully he will do okay tonight. We are planning on going to rounds in the morning so maybe we can get some more information tomorrow. Here are some pics of our little man from yesterday. :-)
