Welcome Baby Jackson

Welcome Baby Jackson

Just a quick update on our precious baby boy…

On November 18, 2014, Jose and I welcomed Jackson Bedingfield Serrentino into the world. He was born at 8:05am and weighed 7 pounds, 2 ounces – he appeared to be a very happy and healthy little boy! Jackson stole our hearts the minute we laid eyes on him. We are so grateful to be blessed with this beautiful child.

Last Wednesday evening, Jackson was sent to the Odessa NICU because he was not able to breathe regularly on his own. By Thursday evening, the doctors discovered that Jackson has a serious heart condition, and we were immediately airlifted to the Methodist Hospital in San Antonio to prepare for surgery. This morning, Jackson will undergo heart surgery to correct a coarctation of the aorta. This is a condition in which the aorta vessel leading up to his lungs has been pinched, blocking a steady flow of blood to his lungs. I have started a blog this weekend to explain the diagnosis, and also to share news about the surgery and his recovery (ourbabyjacksonbedingfield.wordpress.com). I’ll also be posting updates on this blog as the week progresses. Please keep our family and especially this sweet baby boy in your prayers this week!

xo, Amanda

  1. Amanda: I am giving you all the positive vibes and good thoughts. I’m confident that little Jackson is going to come through this with flying colours. When my daughter was born it was a VERY stressful experience and I was utterly traumatized but she is 14 now and very hearty and healthy (and sassy). These things happen and they are beyond stressful. I’m thinking of you and your family. xo

  2. Thinking of baby Jackson and the rest of the family. He is so adorable. Hope the surgery is successful. Praying for this little guy.

    1. Thank you so much! Everything went well in his surgery yesterday, thank God. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this time, and as he progresses through his recovery. xo

  3. First off, congratulations Amanda! What a beautiful little boy & Jackson is such a great name! I had a look at your new blog and what a boy – a real fighter by the sounds of it! I completely understand what you mean about learning so much from him, I feel the same about my wee boy – I’m seeing the world through new eyes so much of the time now. I hope you & your husband get to take Jackson home before too long & wish him a speedy recovery.
