To the joy of his 28-year-old mother Qusai looked beautiful and healthy when born earlier this month. But he soon looked blue and had difficulty breathing.
At the hospital in Gaza doctors suspected a heart problem, and on echocardiogram discovered multiple complex defects.
He’s now in the ICU in critical condition and on mechanical ventilation, awaiting transfer to Israel–his only hope to live. Doctors at the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem are working to make a place for him despite crowding caused by Covid-19, and have asked us to bring him on Sunday, August 2. Please ask God with us for grace for Qusai until then, and for all the days of his life that will follow.
