Jackson was born August 2008 with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), a rare congenital heart defect affecting the left ventrical and aorta. Three days after he was born he had the first of three open heart surgeries at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, UT. In January 2009 he had his 2nd surgery, the Glenn, and in May 2012 he had his third open heart surgery, the Fontan. He is currently doing great and you would hardly know he's anything but perfectly healthy. He's sweet, cute, and as wonderful as they come and such a joy in our lives.
We went in for our regular 20 week ulatrasound and everything looked healthy and great. But our sweet little guy takes after his father and likes to lay on his stomach in just the right position so that they couldn't get a good picture of his heart. They decided that is was no big deal and they would just take a peek at our next regular appointment to make sure everything was ok.
