In the hospital

Sorry for the lack of updates here! To make a long story kind of short, because it is very late and I am exhausted, Magnus has been admitted to the ICU. At first, they were going to put in a chest tube (which is pretty much what it sounds like...they poke a hole in his chest and put a tube in to drain fluid from around the lungs). But then they changed their minds and decided that they were going to try IV diuretics first. I have no idea how long we will be here or what the significance (if any) of this development is. I have been at work all day and drove straight to the hospital when my class got out at 8:30 p.m. (in a town about an hour away from here). Of course he's been asleep the whole time I've been here, but it's such a huge relief to finally be with him!

  1. I'm glad to hear he was feeling good even though he was showing fluid on the lungs.

    Not sure what to make of it though.

    But I do opt that if you're still feeling good that's a hella better than not feeling good no matter what else is going on.

    Good luck!

    Keep an eye on those doctors. They sometimes want to keep trying stuff, just because they can't figure something out without considering all the extra procedures the patient is going through.
