Already extubated

If you saw him today, you would hardly believe it’s only yesterday that Amin had his open heart surgery. He is already extubated and without any oxygen support.

Prior to surgery, his normal oxygen level was sometimes as low as 55%, and even at his best, he rarely reached 75%. He was tinged with blue lips and fingers, and so today I really understood his mother when she said to me “look at what a beautiful colour he is!”

He is transformed. With the monitor telling us his oxygen is in the high 90s, it is really a happy case for Amin. He is in such a good condition, that he is able to start drinking milk already. Just 10ml at a time, a tiny amount, but if it all goes well, he will be able to drink more tomorrow.

Thank God for this good recovery for Amin.
