It was a joy to see Qusai leaving the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem today after more than two months of life-saving treatment. Our coworker Berith exclaimed “Now he looks like a baby!” as compared to when he first arrived.
And what a transformation in his mother, who seemed numb and distant when she came to Jerusalem from Gaza for the first time in her life. Today she insisted on making the rounds to say goodbye to her dear friends in both the children’s department and the ICU!
The last farewell was to Berith at the Erez crossing back into the Gaza Strip. Qusai will be in a week’s quarantine there before he can meet his father and siblings again. Won’t they be surprised! We hope to see him back in December for another checkup.
