CT, waiting for next steps

Our lovely Khonav had her CT scan this afternoon at Sheba hospital.She was pretty nervous for it and asked me and Amelie to come along with her and her brother. We enjoyed the time sitting in the waiting room and sharing pictures of our families.

The CT scan showed that Khonav’s pulmonary arteries are very narrow, which is the cause of her cyanosis (blueness in the fingers and lips). Her doctors will discuss the best option for treatment, likely a cath or surgery.

Khonav had to fast before the CT, but is now back in Ashdod to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr holiday–the end of the month of fasting for Ramadan– with the other Kurdish families.
