When co-Georgia and I arrived at Sheba hospital in the morning, Joud had just been taken into a catheterization. Her mum was quiet, but we also sensed a sadness.
During the two hours Joud was in the cath, we talked with Joud’s mother about her life in Gaza. She showed us her other children and their house as well. You can tell from pictures that Joud’s brother and sister are her relations; they all share similar, beautiful traits.
After about two hours, Joud was brought out of the cath and spent the better part of the next hour waking up from the effects of anesthesia. Her mum cradled her head as the medicine wore off. Thank God for this successful intervention.
