Maverick's Story -- 

April 6, 2016, my 8 month old son underwent a urological procedure. The doctors were done with the surgery and were applying the dressings when they noticed that Maverick’s CO2 levels had gone up. My sons temperature had dramatically increased and he had a heart rate of 200. The doctors, nurses, and staff caught the MH crisis very early on and acted on it quickly. The hospital was very well prepared and took exceptional care of our baby. During his recovery time, we received a ton of information on MH and were referred to MHAUS. We, along with friends and family, had no prior knowledge of MH and were in total shock when out son had this reaction. Now, we are in the process of working with genetics to get ourselves tested to find out who carried the gene. This was a very scary and unexpected situation. We want to help spread awareness about MH. We are hoping that in the near future that testing for MH becomes more available and easier to conduct. Today, Maverick Domingo Longoria is full of life and continues to grow, learn, and amaze us! His strength is beyond words. We love him so much!


As told by Maverick’s mother, Valerie M. Longoria
