A successful surgery

Eleven day-old Ayub from Gaza had a successful surgery at Sheba Hospital today.

This morning we found out that he will have surgery today, so we were able to sit with Ayub’s mother and comfort her. She was very worried for her newborn baby, but after six hours we were able to see that tiny Ayub was doing well. A nurse told us they are very happy with the surgery’s outcome.

This afternoon,  Ayub was still sedated and will stay so through the night to get some rest. If he does well, they will wake him tomorrow in the morning and remove his breathing tube.

Praise the Lord for Ayub’s successful surgery. We pray for strength and peace for his mother and for Ayub.
