Mariam went into an impromptu echo today for the doctors to check her VSD. I think any echo for her is very hard, and today was no different. The only time she smiled was when co-worker Claudia talked rapid-fire Spanish to her; at this, Mariam was mesmerized, and it made her mom laugh as well.
For a four-month-old who has spent her life in and out of hospitals, usually not comprehending what’s going on, the only safe place is in her mother’s arms. Nevertheless, to have even a simple test like an echo becomes stressful for this little one.
God willing, Mariam will go in for surgery this Wednesday. Please be praying for the operation and for Mariam’s precious life.
