Our son Magnus was born November 19, 2009 with a serious congenital heart defect, HLHS. I set up this blog to keep our family and friends updated on his condition, and to connect with other families dealing with HLHS.

More of the same
We're still waiting for Magnus to be extubated. Overnight he developed some swelling (his face is very puffy) and they're giving him diuretics right now because they want to wait for his fluid to go down before they try to extubate him again. Nobody seems particularly worried or anything, we just have to be patient and wait until he pees some of this fluid out.
