When coworker Petra and I made the visits today at Sheba Hospital, we asked a doctor how Malak was doing. A few days ago, the doctors discovered that one of her vocal cords was paralyzed – this explained Malak’s difficulties in eating.
We were relieved to hear, that Malak can currently eat baby food well as long as she is in an upright position.
Another fluoroscopy on October 16 will show whether Malak will soon be able to return to Gaza with her mother, or whether the doctors will have to give her a PEG tube. Then we will also learn if Malak can drink milk.
Please pray for good fluoroscopy results next Sunday and for God’s goodness on the little girl. Her mother wishes very much to be able to return home.
