Discharged to Jerusalem

Beautiful Noor was discharged this morning! It was a surprise to learn she doesn’t need any medicine, which is something that rarely happens especially in children so soon after surgery. Although she was ready to return to our Jaffa community home this morning, Noor and her mum chose to stay for multiple hours with another Kurdish mother whose child was in surgery today.

What is surprising and rare about this is the love and understanding exhibited by Dalal’s mother. She never rushed anything and was not resentful of the wait, but was genuinely so supportive of this other mum.

In the afternoon, I drove Noor and her mum to our Jerusalem guesthouse where they will be staying for a time with three of our other families; she looks forward to the many opportunities of exploring the old city and Al-Aqsa mosque!
