“Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.“ Zephaniah 3:14
I have no words to tell you about how amazed I am by this little boy. Starting his journey in Israel with very good results and the hope of a quick reunion with his family and continuing it with an incredibly long surgery. Needing very strict isolation and doctor’s looking at him with very concerned looks. If I would stop there and let you guess how he is doing now, I think most people would not choose this answer: Abdusalam is still fighting for his life with the incredible support of his loving Grandma. He was able to get off the ECMO and gives us new updates to rejoice in the Lord: Abdusalam had a cardiac ECO today and it showed good heart function. This result leads us to the next incredible update: The doctors are planning on closing his chest in the next few days. God has fought for this little man and against all odds we are rejoicing because Abdusalam is still alive and is improving!! We as humans have our systems of what is most likely to happen next, but God is greater than any logic. His sovereign hand has worked in little Abdusalam’s body and has given him the strength to conquer the odds and his disease. The Lord be praised for what he has done in Abdusalam’s life.
