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.

They're finally done!
We just spoke to the surgeon, he said they are done and that everything went fine, with no complications. The reason why it took so long is because he had a lot of calcification of his sternum from previous surgeries that they had to cut through. Right now we're waiting outside the ICU for him to be brought up from the OR and then it should be about 45 minutes while they get him transferred and then we can see him. The surgeon said that they will probably try to extubate him in a few hours, but who knows...as always, the 24-48 hours after surgery will be critical.
