Closer to a decision

Mariya had a short appointment with the Pediatric Urologist at Sheba Hospital this morning. He reviewed all the scans and tests done for Mariya’s kidneys during this stay and the last, but it didn’t take long for him to agree with the Nephrologist that the nonfunctioning left kidney seems to be causing Mariya’s UTIs. He is pretty sure that she needs surgery now to remove it, but since this is a big decision, he’s going to discuss it with the Nephrologist and Radiologist tomorrow.

In the meantime, Mariya is as cheerful and smiley as ever. She was all dressed up for her appointment, and even conceded to wearing shoes and a hairclip the whole time instead of throwing them across the room as usual.

Please pray for Mariya’s doctors as they make this big decision for her.
