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.
Jackson passed his echo with flying colors today. We just got done visiting with Dr. Mennon who said he looked really good. His pulmonary arteries are a little narrow but nothing unusual. The next step will be an MRI in a few weeks. After they do that they should be able to get his surgery scheduled. He said there is a chance that he can make it to the New Year without getting the Glen done but we will have to wait and see. We liked Dr. Mennon much more this time. Jackson was sure giving him a dirty look though. We got him here at 7:00 this morning and can not go home until 8:00 tonight. It has been a loooooooong day but it will be over soon.
