A brief discharge to Jerusalem

Upon visiting Ibrahim at Hadassah Hospital today, I discovered that Dr.Julius will allow Ibrahim to spend the weekend in our house.

He and his mother will stay with us until Ibrahim’s surgery slated for Tuesday at the hospital, the day after Yom Kippur. So, anytime after Yom Kippur is officially over even as soon as 8:30 pm Monday night, we can show up on the fourth floor of the Children’s Ward, for the doctors to begin the preparations for the operation.

Until Monday night then, Ibrahim has a few hours to be released from hospital and breathe the fresh air. His antibiotics have stopped and now he just waits and relaxes a bit.  We will collect him and his mother from Hadassah and bring them by Shevet van to our community home today.
