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 slept pretty good last night. He threw up once, and his poor tummy is so full because he hasn't yet pooped that he doesn't want to eat or drink and he is fairly uncomfortable. He's not too happy this morning. They are getting ready to take out his RA line and pacer wires, but he is pretty upset about it so they've ordered some versed. It looks like we'll be headed to the recovery floor later today so that will be good.
