Cleared to fly home to Kurdistan

Our beautiful went to Sheba hospital for an echo today to check how her heart is doing on a new medication.

She needs to see the doctor on Thursday once again, but he was happy with her condition. Lia and her mum were cleared to fly back home to Kurdistan. However they will wait for this appointment which coincides with another Kurdish child’s last appointment, God willing.

Lia’s heart function has improved, but also her personality has really blossomed. She is like a new girl now, open and engaged and expressive. This is one of the best things to witness in a post-operative child, their corrected heart has far reaching implications for the better.
