Meet Our Cherubs!  -   On December 14, 2010, My Life changed forever. My husband and I went to our first ultrasound appointment to find out the sex of our baby. We found out we were having a boy, and also found out there was something wrong with our precious baby. All that we were told was our baby's heart was sitting far in the left side of his chest. Two days later, we had an appointment with a high-risk prenatal doctor and that's when Braxton was diagnosed with having a right-sided CDH. Needless to say, my husband and I worried day and night for the next few months. On April 7, 2011 Our beautiful son was born. He fought for his life the first 11 days, then had to be put on ECMO for 3 weeks. He finally had his repair surgery a week after coming off ECMO, at 38 days old. The doctors told us on several occasions that Braxton probably wouldn't survive. Today, he is still in the NICU, but he is doing very well. He is still being weaned off his medications and learning to feed with a bottle. This is the hardest thing we have ever had to go through. I know we are extremely lucky to have Braxton with us and we are so thankful! Please take a few minutes and vote for CHERUBS EVERY day. Speak for the babies who don't have a voice of their own!
