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.
Well, Jack's first attempt with a bottle went pretty good. He ate about 8 cc's of the 32 that we gave him with quite a bit of interest before he got overwhelmed and started crying. The nurse said that was a good start considering he's never swallowed anything. He is scheduled to attempt a bottle for the first 10 minutes of every other feeding, so hopefully he'll get it figured out a little better in the next few days. My mom took some video of it so I'll try to edit it down and post it later.
