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...

I mailed my letters today. I mailed 119- for some reason there were 19 extra envelopes in my package. My mom also mailed 116 (she had 16 extras!). :-) Thanks to all who gave us stamps so we could mail letters from you!!!

We are going in next Tuesday to hear about Maxton's autopsy. I know this will be a difficult day. Coincidentally it will also be the 4 month angelversary of our little guy. :-( We will be sure to update with what they tell us. I am expecting to hear of an underlying blood disorder, so we shall see.

Thiking of you , Ashley! Great job on mailing all those letters. My 2 pale in comparison! :) When we met with the doctor for Sylvia's autopsy, it was hard, but I did have some questions answered which brought me peace.
