Another good day

Magnus continued to breathe and eat well today! In fact, he's doing so well that it's awfully frustrating to see that they're moving forward so slowly now. But of course it's worth it if this means no more setbacks and going home early next week.

There was some tangible progress today, though. Magnus went off his supplemental oxygen (again) and did extremely well. He also had 4 big feedings, one of which was a new personal best for him (45 ml). And now he's back on all oral medications and nothing through his IV. But they're not going to make any other big changes through the weekend, probably, because they want to wait and see how he does with what's been done already. So I guess we just have to be patient, grrrr.


  1. Man I know how annoying the hospital is on chance of being sent home, even though you're probably ready. Hang in there, you're so close now!!!

  2. I'm sure it's frustrating to not be able to take Magnus home, but he'll be home in no time at all. After a few weeks at home, you'll probably be wishing for them to take him back at night, occasionally, while you're trying to sleep.

  3. I feel your "I wanna go home!" frustration!! You and Magnus are doing great! You'll be going home before you know it!
