Dade Calvin

Dade is our first child and came to us after 17 months of struggling with fertility issues. I had a normal pregnancy and delivered Dade on August 6th, 2007. During labor the fetal monitors picked up an arrhythmia and doctors did an EKG and Echo shortly after birth.

Our pediatrician told us Dade had Pulmonary Valve Stenosis and referred us to PCMC for further care with a pediatric cardiologist. He had EKG's and Echo's every few months until he turned 1 and the stenosis wasn't improving so the doctor felt it would be best if he had a heart catheterization to stretch out the valve.

Since this procedure, Dade has been perfect! He no longer sweats when he plays. He doesn't turn blue. We are grateful that his condition was so minor and that it's been fixed!

I would like to add a note to each of these pages as I've had many people ask about the origins of my children's names. Dade is the main character in a movie called Hackers. It's a 1990's era computer hacker movie (hence, the title) When Justin and I were dating we watched it and we both thought the name was awesome, as was the character, and vowed to name our first son Dade.

My love, we have seen it all
The Endless confession,The rise and fall
As fragile as a child
Lately I'm sorry I can't hold a smile

But I stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide
Did you know I take the time for you
Did you know that I would see you through
Did you know that I would play the part
I must've made it clear right from the start

My love, can you give me strength
Somehow I forgot how to ease my pain
I know I'm right where I belong
Something from nothing never proved me wrong

But I stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide
Did you know I take the time for you

Did you know that I would see you through
Did you know that I would play the part
I must've made it clear right from the start

I would shade my whole life with you
Would you do the same for me
I would give all I am to you
Would you do the same for me

And I will stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide
Could you see I've been brave
Did you notice all my mistakes
There were times I could feel you read my mind

Did you know I take the time for you
Did you know that I would see you through
Did you know that I would play the part
I know I made it clear right from the start
