From my brother-in-law, posted on their website http://releasingthetwins.com
It’s with a terrible pain in my heart that I’m writing this but it hurts too much to say it out loud to each of you. Our son, Jackson Armando Santoro passed away this morning at 11:49am. We are not sure the exact cause yet, but whatever it was it caused his heart to stop beating, and there was nothing the doctors could do to make it beat again. We’re so happy that we got to spend some time with him this morning - we changed his diaper, took his temperature, and sat with him for a while. His vitals had been up and down the past 24 hours but he seemed like he was fighting it off and would be fine. We left with the nurses to walk Finn over to children’s hospital for his surgery this morning - but when we returned Jackson was struggling and he quickly got worse from there. Anne and I were both with him when he passed.
He changed our lives so much in the 8 days he was with us and we’ll never be the same without him. God blessed us with his brother Finn, who’s recovering well from his successful surgery this afternoon. We love you all, but please try not to call us for a few days as it’s too upsetting to talk about.
It was the best 8 days of our lives.
We will always love you Jackson. -Mom and Dad
