Coworker Bjorn and I picked up Rizhna from Sheba Hospital today. She was very sad and unhappy with the hospital environment, and understandably so; she associates it with pain and fear and intense unfamiliarity. She stretched out a hand toward Bjorn and I when we came in, eager to escape from the hospital environment. We, in turn, were eager to bring her back home with us.
Her cath went well and her recovery went well, and now she’ll wait another two weeks before seeing the doctor for her follow-up echocardiogram. It’s possible the results from this are good enough that she won’t need a follow-up surgery–please pray for it!
