The past few days have been excruciatingly difficult for Sarchil's mother as she's struggled to cope with her son's hospitalization. Today brought relief as his improved condition allowed doctors to grant his dismissal back to us here in Jerusalem, along with an appointment for another echocardiogram next week. Although they are pleased with the decrease of fluid around Sarchil's heart and lungs as his body responds to medication, doctors are reluctant to send him home too soon. His situation will require close follow up back home since the heart medications influence the blood-clotting levels in his body. This means that anti-clotting dosage must change according to the dosage of his heart meds; as the heart meds are reduced, a proper clotting level must also be maintained. Will you join your prayers with ours for Sarchil and his doctors during this balancing act?
Sarchil lives a couple of hours from his cardiologist, and his cardiologist will be the one managing these dosages as Sarchil's bloodwork indicates appropriate increases or decreases. At day's end, we brought mother and son back to the Shevet house, where we look forward to more time to love them along their way home.
Please leave a comment for the child or for the Shevet team.
