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.
Jack sounds a LOT better today than he has the past few days, so I think we're on the mend. He still has a cough, but he's upgraded from sounding like a chain smoker to wheezing like he has asthma, so much improved. Our only problem now is that he just decided to wake up from his long afternoon nap that he's supposed to be taking after just 20 minutes. :) Mom to the rescue.
