First echo and admission

After arriving in Israel yesterday morning, little Amina had her first echo at Sheba hospital today. The echo took quite a long time, as the doctors were looking very carefully at her heart, but Amina was calm for most of it. A bottle of milk and a video call with her family back home helped her relax.

Amina’s oxygen saturation was very low when she arrived at her appointment and remained lower than usual for the whole echo. After examining her heart and considering her condition, her cardiologist decided it’s best to admit her to the hospital for now.

Amina is now resting in the ICU at Sheba hospital and waiting for a CT scan in the coming days before her heart surgery.
