A post-surgery visit

After Hadassah Hospital doctors were unable to open up Loai’s narrow pulmonary valve in the cath lab yesterday morning, he was rushed into the operating room in the afternoon for surgery to place a shunt.

He only finally emerged again after 6:00 pm. Today we found him stable and his grandmother much relieved. He’ll need more surgery in the future, but his doctors are optimistic about his long-term prognosis.

Thank God for prolonging this precious life.
