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.
The Chest is CLOSED! Dr. Kaza got done around 5:15. He said everything looked good. They are going to let Jack gradually breathe on his own today and tomorrow. Hopefully if all goes well he will be extubated in the next 36-48 hours. That is kind of our next step. We had the camera ready to go but in the haste to see our son we forgot to bring it up. We will get some pics later tonight. Again, marathon not a sprint but Jack is doing so good and we are so happy with his progress.
