Catheterization

Arwa finally went into a diagnostic catheterization at Sheba Hospital today. This was a necessary first step for the doctors before knowing if Arwa can have surgery.

Arwa’s pulmonary artery and aorta are connected. This causes too much bloodflow through the pulmonary artery, which can do a lot of damage to the artery. Arwa was supposed to have this surgery when she was two weeks old. Now she is four years old, so the doctors need to know if they can still operate on this. If the artery is too damaged, the surgery will not happen.

The doctors have a meeting in a week and decide on surgery or not. Please pray a blessing over the doctors and Arwa.
