Jackson Benham Reo's Journal
Written Apr 15, 2011 5:35pmWe just returned from Children's for Jackson's annual heart exam. The best news is that we don't really have anything to report. Jackson seems to be growing up "like a normal boy" and his heart is doing the same. So until next year, we are to continue as we have been and then over time we will observe what we need to do (if anything) for him and his heart condition.
Needless to say, we are elated with the news as we continue with our daily business of work, school and our new adventure with Baby #2, Baby Girl Reo. Jackson's not sure what to think, but since he has until August 2011, we are hoping the idea will wear on him. Since Jackson had a heart defect, this baby is 'treated' as such until we know differently at the OBGYN. For this reason, next week the baby and I will have a similar appointment to the one Jackson had today at Children's to take a look at her heart. We will certainly keep you updated if there is anything to report here as well.
In the meantime, you can catch up with us on Facebook to see what else the Reos are up to - less medically related. It's not always exciting, but since medical news is our only intent here, Facebook is the best way to keep up with us in between yearly visits.
Until next time, have a great weekend and have a wonderful Easter.
Love, The Reos

Today Jackson had his first appointment since his procedure. It was long and without food, Jackson Reo is NOT a happy boy. But what he is, said his cardiologist, Dr. Scott - "Is fantastic!"
He is doing well and our next appointment isn't for another year.
I have just gotten the best Mother's Day gift ever - well except that we did have the best son ever.
Love to you on this Mother's Day!
PS: The photo here shows him after the long day with his congratulations balloon and his sucker (two minutes later he went right back to sleep, but we will celebrate when he has his birthday next month!
Written Mar 25, 2010 12:05pmThings are back to normal. We were discharged and are now at home. I am hoping an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba's Sleep will get him ready to rest. He's been up for a while, but still in a very good mood.:) Mom might be the one who needs a nap!
I know an update of Jackson's progress was on Fox Good Day today - I was busy taking care of the little man, but I hope someone saw it.
We'll have an appointment in the next 4-6 weeks, but it looks like things are doing wonderful.
Thank you again for all your thoughts!
