Not even one week old

Kenan is not even one week old, but doctors in Gaza identified that he had Transportation of the Great Arteries. Shevet Achim arranged yesterday to have him taken by ambulance from Gaza to Sheba hospital.

Today he had a CT-Angio,  of which the doctors are waiting to see the results. Doctors also saw that his Mitral Valve is very small and that he also has a heart abnormality known as VSD.

He is chaperoned by his grandmother whom I met today. She was sitting with the other mother’s from Gaza in the ICU waiting room. If I didn’t know better, I would have thought she was old friends with the women she was sitting with, rather than having just met them last night. It was really encouraging to see our other Gaza moms welcoming her.
