Machmoud underwent a catheterization today at Sheba Medical Center. The doctors were able to dilate his pulmonary artery by placing a stent. The doctor told me they are optimistic that he will be extubated soon and even moved to the intermediate ICU. That is great news! Machmoud’s aunt is really happy that everything went so well. She doesn’t like being away from her family, but she is happy to be around a community of Gaza mothers and grandmothers in the hospital.
