Hanging in there

Not much change to report in Magnus's condition today, which is pretty much as expected. It looks like they are probably going to close his chest on Friday. The big excitement today was that they managed to put a PICC line in him after several failed attempts that unfortunately left him looking even more like a pincushion than he already did. But it's good that they finally got the line in.

Iggy posted a few more videos of pre-surgery Magnus over at Youtube today. We will not be posting any photos or videos of him, nor are we taking any, in his current state. It is NOT something we want to remember.


  1. I'm so sorry you guys have to see him like this, it must be so unimaginably difficult. I hope for positive developments in the next few days--chest closed, breathing tube out, and then the wires and lines coming out one by one. Stay strong, my friend. Nothing but love for you.

    (I wish I could see you but I've been sick myself, and of course, do not want to risk passing anything along. But I'm thinking of you!!)

  2. Oh, poor Magnus. I'm so sorry you all have to go through this. But you're all doing amazingly great and being so strong. I love you guys.
