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.

Plication is on
Well, the doctors decided that even though the imaging study was not entirely clear, they are very confident that Magnus's diaphragm needs to be plicated, and he is scheduled for surgery at 2 p.m. tomorrow. They will also be able to remove any pockets of fluid they find in there. Obviously, a second surgery is not great, but I'm hopeful that this will accelerate our recovery.
