Dilshad is at the Jerusalem Shevet house, fully recovering from his surgery.
Before his surgery, he stayed at the Shevet house for a month with his mother! His mom really got familiar with life here, and upon returning got right back into living here. She didn't act like a guest at all! She took the other two mothers with her, and went down to the Old City to do grocery shopping (definitely not a common occurrence for an Iraqi mother).
Dilshad, his mother, and the two other Iraqi families went to church with us on Saturday. For much of the way there Dilshad and Rebar ran! We aren't really able to tell if this was physically easier for Dilshad or not, but his face and lips have lost their blueish tinge.
His next and hopefully last echocardiogram will be on Thursday.
Please leave a comment for the child or for the Shevet team.
