A blood test today

Sweetie Mimi had a blood test today, necessary before her CT scan next week. She is always a happy and content little soul, and it was just a few minutes of distress for her, having that blood test. She shouted the names of some of her new friends here in Israel “Imdad!!” “Ramyar!!” as a few tears rolled down her face, trying her best to let us all know that she was upset about the blood test.

And shortly afterwards, she forgot all about it, and enjoyed herself playing on the train and looking at YouTube videos. We waited for another Kurdish child’s echo to finish and Maryam enjoyed a gift of a very nice piece of baklava to sweeten the day.
