Eyes open

written by Anna and Colin


Yesterday, the surgeons placed in Mahmoud a BT shunt to help improve the blood flow to his lungs. This will help improve his oxygen levels as well. Mahmoud was not extubated today. His hands and eyes were swollen from excessive fluid build up.

When we stroked his hands, he slightly opened his little eyes. It was so precious to see this, as we had never seen his eyes open before. They are beautiful, the color of deep blue and green mixed together.

The doctors are hoping that he will be extubated tomorrow. We pray that his health would continue to improve.
