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 got to see Jack! He is out of surgery and resting in the PICU. He is still very sedated. They think things are looking pretty good. His Blood Pressure is a little high but it has started to come down. We will post a picture a little later but I don't think he looks nearly as bad as he did after his first surgery. Of course, we are just so happy to see him that I don't think it would really matter what he looks like. They are going to monitor him closely over the next little while and if all goes well they will take him off the ventilator in the morning.
