Just a few quick updates:
-I've been officially discharged! Of course, I'm still going to be in the hospital most of the time anyway, but I'm very excited to have the option of going outside, wearing real clothes, etc! Basically, I left the house on Tuesday morning for a non-stress test, and haven't been home since, so I'm very excited to at least go through my mail and water the plants!
-Dr. Azakie stopped by Magnus's bedside this morning (he is quite a guy...not only does he never get sick, he also works 7 days a week, apparently!) He said he wants to try to schedule Magnus's surgery for Tuesday instead of Wednesday if they can make that work. They're going to let us know definitively tomorrow. The reason they want to do this is just because he's doing so well right now, and every day that goes by is another chance for that to not be the case. I totally agree that sooner is better than later. Also, I would feel a little better about his first post-surgical day NOT being a major holiday (Thanksgiving).
-We have a totally cool nurse today who let me have skin-to-skin contact with Magnus for close to an hour this morning! He really seemed to like it and of course I did, too! We're going to try to do more of that today, definitely.
