The lights are on, but you're not home

Magnus's chest closing went ahead as planned this morning, and the doctors and nurses were very pleased with how he handled it. I guess they gave him a massive dose of narcotics when they did it, because he was pretty much totally out of it all day. But all his vital signs looked good. The mood in his room now is palpably more relaxed than it was on his first day in there.

Now, the next step is to wean him off the ventilator. One of the doctors told me today that that would probably happen within "a few days." Even though he's making good progress, it can't happen fast enough for us. We both miss holding him so much!


  1. Yes, we're cheering for getting him off that ventilator as well. Thanks for keeping us posted.

  2. I was directed here by my sister Clare (Bluemoxie). Just wanted to let you know that our thougths are with you. You have a beautiful baby boy.

  3. Hello, We found your blog through Juliannes. Our son has HRHS. He is now post Fontan and doing great! We are praying for your sweet baby and family. There is a whole world of heart family out there praying for you.
