CT scan today

This morning, coworker Moshe and I took Ahmed along with his mother to his CT scan at Sheba hospital.

It was a challenging day for him, as he was fasting since last night and the scan was delayed by several hours. However, throughout the long morning, we were grateful for the kindness shown again and again by the medical staff and the other patients. One woman in the waiting room sat with Ahmed’s mother and chatted with her in Arabic for quite some time.

One doctor even slipped Ahmed some money to buy a snack when the scan was over. Ahmed needs a heart surgery quite soon, and the results of the scan today will help the doctors decide how to proceed.
