Undated -- We have good news to share about Baby Jaxx Denny. He was born with a curved spine, no kidney, and missing six ribs. Tuesday, had his second expansion surgery, where doctors expanded the metal rods they surgically implanted in his back to help him grow up straight.
Doctors couldn't take Jaxx off the ventilator until today. But his dad, Pete, shared this video of Jaxx just 30 minutes after waking up. You can see Jaxx sitting up and playing! He still looks a little out of sorts, as he's still on a lot of pain medicine, but Pete Denny said he already looks taller!
The doctors told Pete and Tammy Denny everything looks good.
The Dennys hope they can be released from the hospital to head back home tomorrow.
