First assessment

Seven month old Rawen had his first assessment today at Sheba Medical Center. This sweet boy did very well during this long day.

From his echo, the doctors gathered information about his heart, the VSD, the narrowing of his aorta, and also the high pulmonary pressure which complicates his case. His mother was eager to learn as much as she could. Usually these first days are new and overwhelming, but she absorbed everything, and was very understanding of the whole process.

Rawen went on after the echo for a blood test, where the very lovely nurse practiced her Kurdish with the mother of Rawen who is a very willing teacher.

It was long day, but it was very productive for Rawen. His mother was very joyful throughout as she saw her boy being cared for. Please pray for them both.
