Ahmed came to the hospital today for an echo and assessment of his condition since being discharged after his emergency catheterization. The doctor saw him in the waiting area and exclaimed how good he looks. He is definitely putting on weight and growing nicely. After the appointment, the doctor was also sure to praise his aunty for her diligent care of Ahmed during this time.
Because of Ahmed’s growth, doctors are considering whether they can immediately take him into surgery or catheterisation for the next stage of his treatment. Families returning to Gaza must enter into a three week quarantine, and so this may influence their decision about when the next steps of his treatment can go ahead.
Please pray for his lovely aunty as she is missing her family, and for wisdom for the doctors to make the right decisions about the next steps of intervention for little Ahmed.
