I had hoped that today would be a day of great leaps and bounds, but early this morning we got the news that his chest X-ray was looking a little worse again (his lung was looking a little more collapsed). They discussed putting him back on the CPAP machine, but then at the last minute decided to hold off and instead to focus on trying to get him upright as much as possible and out of bed.
Later that morning, we had a visit from the parents of one of Magnus's school friends. They brought us some delicious lunch, which was very exciting!
After they left, it was time to work on getting up and about. Yesterday, with the help of the physical therapy team, he was able to sit in a chair for about 10 minutes before getting too tired. Today, he sat in the chair for 45 minutes! They did another X-ray this afternoon, and his lung was looking about the same or maybe a little better, so we are still off the CPAP for now.
Iggy is also headed back to San Francisco today, though he'll still be coming down to visit. Luckily, the cavalry (a.k.a. Grandma Ruth) is on its way as we speak!
