A turn for the worse

 

I saw Fathi’s mother soon after I arrived in the hospital. She looked tired.  She told me that since I had last seen her, Fathi’s heart had stopped and that he needed resuscitation. Now, she explained that it was not possible to go into the room and see him because his chest was open. So he is in complete isolation in the hospital. It was difficult to hear the news.

Later we sat together. The other mother that Fathi’s mom is friendly with, shared lunch with us. This time the other mother shared some photos with me of her baby who is in the ICU as well. I realized the blessing it is to have a friend to sit with during these hard times.

Hopefully the doctors will find they are able to close Fathi’s chest tomorrow. Please keep them in your prayers, and that God will work a healing miracle in Fathi’s body.
