Diagnosis

Yazan, just arrived two days ago, has a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot which is a combination of several heart defects. He is also diagnosed with pulmonary atresia which means that the blood doesn’t flow properly from his heart to the lungs as the pulmonary valve didn’t form properly. Since his heart condition is a little complicated, he had a CT today at Sheba Hospital to check how his heart looks exactly.

Shortly before we visited Yazan, he had just pulled out the intubation tubes himself. As he was doing quite well, doctors wanted to leave him extubated. He needs oxygen support, but otherwise he is quite stable. Next week he will probably have his surgery to correct his heart. Please pray for him as an unknown and hard journey begins for him as well as his mother and family.
