Good news: Magnus got moved to the step-down unit, and he's on all oral meds now (as opposed to IV meds).

Bad news: The nurse practitioner said he's definitely not getting out tomorrow because he still has to be weaned off his oxygen cannula. Not sure when they're going to try to do that. Today has been sort of rough...I don't know if it's because he's in pain or just because he's sick of the hospital but Magnus has been extremely fussy since last night and hasn't slept much. I feel pretty certain that he'll do better at home, so I'm really anxious to get out of here.

Also, I got a jury duty summons.


  1. Oh yuk - I'm sure Magnus is sick of the hospital. I'm sick of the hospital, and I'm not even there!
    Well, the good news is that he's progressing! Also, can't you ask them to postpone your jury duty? I think a sick baby should be a good enough excuse.

  2. No wonder the poor little guy is fussy! Perhaps he will make enough noise that they will change their minds about discharge. It still looks as if you've been making amazing progress, and we are so happy for all three of you!

  3. The step-down is a step closer to home...sounds like it'll be any day now! We'll hope for Wednesday!
