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 are just waiting for the discharge nurse to give us the go ahead to go home. We are very excited but still a little nervous. Again, we can not thank everyone enough for their prayers on behalf of our family. We were anticipating a minimum stay of a month. We are leaving 17 days after Jack's birth. He is truly a miracle. We are grateful for all the wonderful people at Primary Children's who have cared for him. Hopefully we will get some pictures of Jack in his own room later tonight.
