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.

Out of surgery
We just got the call from the surgeon that everything went about as well as could be hoped. They were able to do the surgery laparoscopically (which basically just means he won't have another big scar, but we were relieved about that), and they were able to place a button type G tube right away (sometimes they have to place a different type of tube and then switch it out for a button later). We're still in the waiting room now, but they said we'll get to go up and see him in 5-10 minutes (which means 10-20 minutes or more in hospital time).
