When I stopped by to see Bilal in the ICU today I was surprised to see that he was already extubated from mechanical ventilation. He was sleeping and I wasn't about to wake him up. No doctors were around so I didn't get to ask any questions, but since he was already extubated this is a great sign that he is doing good. His mom seemed really at peace and happy.
All the families really in hospital are enjoying their time together. It's nice when there are others from our Shevet families together at the hospital. It doesn't seem nearly as lonely to them. When I think of this I think of our theme scripture, Psalm 133:1 "Behold how pleasant and how good it is for brethern to dwell together in unity."
Please pray that all will continue to go well for Bilal and his mother and that he will be able to return to Shevet Achim soon,
