Jeremy and Vanessa Jackson welcomed their precious twin boys, Cooper Chad Jackson and Dax Edward Jackson on August 10th, at 2:00am. Born at 35 weeks, Cooper weighed 5lb 4oz, and Dax weighed only 2lb 11oz.
Cooper's lungs need to develop a little bit more, but he's doing great and should be out this week. Unfortunately, that is not the case for little Dax.
Among a few other complications, Dax has been diagnosed with a condition known as Tetrology of Fallot, it's a congenital heart defect where there's a hole in the wall that divides the right and left ventricles. That gap causes the oxygenated and non-oxygenated blood to mix. You may have heard of this before as it is the same condition late night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel's son, Billy, was recently diagnosed with.
Although we are believing God for a full recovery for Dax, he has a long road ahead of him. Before Dax can be considered for any type of corrective heart surgery, he has a lot of growing to do and will most likely have to be in the OKC hospital for at least another month.
Because finances should be the last thing Jeremy and Vanessa need to worry about right now, we have set up this account to assist them with medical expenses as well as the expenses that come with communing back and forth between Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
We thank you for your prayers and support as little Dax embarks on his road to recovery.
