Asmeen had her first appointment at Sheba hospital for this time in Israel. It was just a quick appointment with the nephrologist, who reviewed her reports from Kurdistan and asked us to take her for a kidney ultrasound so he can get a better idea of her situation. We’re used to working with the cardiology department, so I’ve been a bit nervous about navigating the nephrology clinic for the first time. But it turns out there’s nothing to worry about — the head doctor and his secretary are going above and beyond for Asmeen, even scheduling all her appointments as quickly as possible. When the doctor found out Asmeen is from Kurdistan, he said “We love the Kurds! I’ll do my very best for her.” Asmeen will have her ultrasound on Thursday and then return early next week to see the nephrologist again.
