October 4, 2009 Bilal was healthy enough today to be released from the hospital back to our center in Jerusalem. The surgery seems to be a distant memory for Bilal as he has returned to his usual congenial self. Bilal and his mother were excited to go back to Jerusalem and were anxiously walking around the hospital until we were finally able to leave. Bilal doesnt seem to be hindered by any pain, he was able to trot away from his mother trying to escape a face cleaning, and he had no trouble fighting with the car seat on the ride home. The families were excited to see Bilal and his mother since Bilals dismissal today was a surprise.
