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 now sitting in the waiting room waiting for Jack’s surgery to begin. We came over early this morning to spend some time with him before. They let us hold him again which was great. Dr. Kaza came and visited and told us he would take good care of him. We believe him but man it was hard to tell him goodbye. They will provide us periodic updates on his progress. We are scared but know he is in the best hands he could be
