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's dad spoke in church today and did a very nice job, so of course Jack got all dressed up in his Sunday Best and got to go listen. He was very handsom and mostly well behaved. We only had to step out into the hall twice. He's not used to this whole church thing. As soon as RSV season is over we'll give him a lot more practice.
