A wonderful recovery

It was a joy to see Jalal this morning. Co-worker Julio and I went to the secondary ICU floor of Sheba Medical Center to visit another child and were happily surprised to see Jalal awake and breathing without any help!

His mum was glowing and peaceful as she sat with Jalal in her lap. She rose to greet us and took Jalal in her arms. He looked quite perplexed as to who we were but it was wonderful to meet this precious boy.

His hospital pajamas concealed his surgery scar. Knowing this, it’s hard to believe that this wide-eyed boy had a major heart surgery only four days ago. His recovery has been wonderful, thank you God for this gift!
