|Birth: ||Nov. 29, 2004|
|Death: ||Aug. 6, 2007, USA|
Born with a special heart. Lived life a fighter until god saw his precious little princess was tired. God then took this princess up to her eternal castle.
She will forever be missed by all that have met her!
Jessalynn was born with a congenital heart defect (CHD). She had pulmonary atresia (pulmonary valve missing) along with holes in her heart. Jessalynn had her 1st heart surgery at 10 days old and her 2nd heart surgery a few months later. In September of 2006 Jessalynn went in for her 3rd heart surgery. A few procedures here and a few there and we were almost ready to go home. The doctors decided to do one more procedure before we left. This procedure left a little princess with a special heart severly brain damaged. She would never walk, talk, or smile again :( She also had seizures, cortical blindness, myopathy, well.... the last procedure left many new issues for this little girl. After the family learned how to take care of trachs, feeding tube, seizures, medications, and a few other things we were finally going home! After 8 long months!!!
Jessalynn spent the last three months of her life in and out of the hospital. Then one day unexpectedly she went to her heavenly father.
This 2 year old little girl took our hearts places we never knew existed. She taught us more in her short life than in the many years we have lived.
Jessalynn loved Elmo in which she called "Melmo". She enjoyed watching spongebob in which she called "Bob-Bob".
She had a heart of gold. She was 1 in a billion.
The picture here on her page is the last picture we have of her smile. This picture was taken right before her procedure (plurodesis) that left her severly brain damaged. We have no answers to what went wrong but I DO believe that she was too good for us here.
Feel free to visit her memorial page at:
To our dear sweet lil princess: We miss you more and more each day. We love you more than any of us knew was possible. As your daddy once said "save a beautiful smile for us"
