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.

Magnus got his IV, and as usual, he barely flinched. The child life specialist seemed skeptical when we told her that Magnus is usually very stoic for IV placements and blood draws and that he never cries, but both she and the IV nurse were pleasantly surprised. He's been busy playing with hospital toys and watching Spongebob on the iPad...so much so that he hasn't even asked us for anything to eat or drink. And now that he has his IV, they're giving him some fluids and glucose, so hopefully that should keep him relatively comfortable. So far everything has been as easy as we could have possibly hoped, with the exception of having no idea when he'll go back for the cath.
