We dropped Magnus off at the cath lab a little after 9 and he's still up there. Things generally went smoothly this morning, with the exception that the cold I thought he had entirely shaken was still evident when the doctors and nurses listened to his chest. However, they determined that since the congestion is in his upper airway and not in his lungs, it was safe to go ahead with the anesthesia and cath, but they said it might take him a little longer to come off the breathing tube when they're done.
We haven't heard anything from them, which is good, since the only reason we would expect them to have called by now is if there's a problem. My guess is that he'll probably be in there for another hour or more.
