Dental surgery

After three long months of waiting, Rizhna finally had her dental procedure today! She wasn’t super excited to be at the hospital, and only cheered up when she was allowed to sit in the window in the waiting room with no doctors in sight.

The dentist was able to clean all Rizhna’s teeth, repair some infected ones, and remove others. This was the last obstacle standing between Rizhna and her heart surgery, so now we’re just waiting for a date for the operation. She’s spending the night in the hospital for the doctors to be sure she’s well after the procedure, and we hope to bring her back to Ashdod tomorrow.
