Excited for Surgery

While waiting to be admitted for surgery we went to the children’s area. This precious girl is rarely still as you can see from this slightly blurry photo. She is in constant motion unless she sees something she likes and then she can stare so intently it can be unnerving in one so young. Not able to crawl, she shuffles around at a remarkable rate and keeps us all on our toes. 

She was assessed today by the anesthetist and admitted for a blood test and echo prior to surgery on the 14th. Her mother has been incredible throughout; so patient and keeping Ana occupied which is not easy with someone so active. She is very excited about the possibility that Ana will be able to eat and talk properly. Please pray that Ana gets all the tests she needs in a timely manner as although optimistic, her mother is very tired and is looking forward to returning to Kurdistan.
