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.

So far, so good
I am pleased to report that Magnus has continued to not do anything that would extend his hospital stay. They're transitioning him back to all oral medications today (and he gets to ditch that yucky scalp IV, yay!) and weaning him off oxygen at some point, and he just has to do OK with all of that, NOT spike a fever, have his cultures from yesterday continue to turn up negative, and have a normal white blood cell count tomorrow. And then we're free! I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, though, since that's quite a few things that all have to go our way.
