Admitted for surgery

Handsome little Anas and his mother made the trip from Gaza this morning for a long-awaited appointment at Sheba hospital. After some delays, it’s finally time for Anas’ next surgery, the Glenn operation. This is the second of three surgeries needed to reroute blood through his single-ventricle heart.

Anas is a cheerful little guy and was happy and content right up until his echo began. As soon as it was done, he was back to giggling and grinning– unless, of course, we were trying to get a picture.

Anas’ surgery is scheduled for Wednesday. Until then, the doctors will be finishing the last few tests he needs before the operation. Please pray for Anas and his mom as they get ready for the big surgery.
