A smile that lights up the room

Raghad was all smiles today when I met her and her grandmother in their room at Sheba Medical Center. After her Catheterization last week, she is recovering well.

Today she had an Echo-cardiogram which showed some fluid in her lungs, for this they started her on some medication.

We had fun playing with her favourite pink balloon and passing a small soccer ball between us. There is an Arabic complimentary phrase that one would say that translates to, “your presence is the light of the house” (or city, or insert location here). And I certainly thought that for Raghad. Her smile lit up the room. It was so good to see her radiant like this.
