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 went in for his cath at about 3 p.m. They said it would be about 2 hours, but they are still in there. We just got something of an update: they were able to drain the fluid from his effusion without putting in a chest tube (this is good), but the bad news is that his Fontan pressures are high (this is bad) and they are coiling off some collateral vessels (also bad). One of the doctors just called Iggy and said that he was probably going to be going back to the ICU, but didn't explain why and I didn't get a chance to talk to her. The person I spoke to in the cath lab also said she thought they might be done pretty soon, but she didn't know much about what was going on.
