Admitted for cath

Niyan and her dad were ready to go bright and early this morning, and very eager to get to Sheba hospital. Tomorrow, Niyan is planned for a diagnostic catheterization, and the day after for dental treatment in preparation for her heart surgery.

While we waited for her admission, Niyan taught me some new Kurdish words and worked on her English and Arabic. She’s definitely a faster learner than me!

It didn’t take too long before her room in the secondary ICU was ready and the cardiologist explained the planned procedure to Niyan’s dad. The cath tomorrow will help the doctors plan the intervention to treat Niyan’s heart condition. Please pray for a good night of rest for Niyan and her dad and a successful procedure tomorrow.
