Co-worker Luzma went into our community home yesterday to give the great news to Mohammed’s mother that Sheba hospital is calling him in for a diagnostic catheterization. This was a complete surprise for Mohammed’s mother. She has been patiently waiting for several weeks for this moment.
The cath took place today. Mohammed’s mother was a little nervous and crying when we were going into the OR. I tried to encourage her while we were waiting.
When the cath was completed, we went to the recovery room. The anesthesiologist is a very kind person, especially when he collects a child from his parents to place him on the operating bed, as though that were his own child.
The doctors said that Mohammed’s little heart is ready for his big surgery. His mother is really happy and anxious at the same time.
