A long road

Our sweet Malak had a successful cath today at Sheba Hospital. The doctors had to widen her pulmonary arteries, and the catheterization took four hours. It was difficult for Malak’s mother to wait that long, but she was patient and strong. While we were waiting, Malak’s mother talked about how hard it is to have to choose between being with her daughter in the hospital, or her son in Gaza.

When Malak’s cath was finished, the doctor was encouraging, but honest. She said that this cath went well, but that Malak will need more caths and surgeries in the future, and that it will be a long and hard road for her.

Please pray that God will grant healing and strength to our beautiful Malak, and that He will comfort and strengthen her mother.
