Catheterization morning

Sulaiman was taken this morning for a catheterization, to check on his coronary arteries.  This was the most recent surgery for him. His mother was so worried, but still it was a pleasure to sit with her during the catheterization time. Some of the Kurdish mothers tried to encourage her during this time also, with the success stories of their own children.

After around two hours, we heard the bleeping of the machines, as Sulaiman emerged from the catheterization room, and the doctor came to announce that his arteries looked good. Um Sulaiman kissed the doctor’s hands in gratitude for the news she had shared.

Still, little Suli has a way to go with his recovery, and remains on ECMO as his heart function is weak. Please keep praying for him and his mother.
