A series of echocardiograms

Shahad had an echo appointment at Sheba Hospital yesterday. Today I visited her to hear about the results and to inquire about her wellbeing.

Her doctor reported to me that Shahad had insufficiency in her blood and therefore probably won’t be able to be discharged in the near future. In order to get a more detailed picture of the problem, another echo should take place on Wednesday. Then the doctors will decide on treatment options.

In her room we ate delicious Arabic sweets together and talked about how difficult it is to learn the Arabic language. A little distraction is always good.

As soon as the doctors have made their decisions about further treatment for Shahad, we will inform you of that. We are grateful for every prayer in the meantime.Let’s pray for Shahad who, despite the news, has remained in good spirits.
