Ahmed’s aunt and I fondly admired Ahmed’s little smile and beautiful eyes. They were planning on extubating him today, but we were waiting for him to be a little more alert prior to the procedure. While we were waiting, we held his little hand and he responded well by staring deep into our eyes. We could not but exclaim at how beautiful Ahmed is, and how thankful we were that he was able to finally have surgery.
A little later, they were able to extubate Ahmed. During this extubation they realized that there was an excessive amount of blood travelling to his lungs and almost re-intubated him, but they have started a medication and are hoping that his body will be able to adjust without surgical intervention.
Please pray for Ahmed’s family as they wait to see how Ahmed responds to these changes.
