First visit at Sheba Hospital

Yousif arrived from Gaza less than 24 hours ago to the Pediatric Cardiac ICU in Sheba hospital and already had a lot of tests done in his first day. His lovely grandmother who is accompanying him, stood by the bedside of the two week old baby when I visited him, and although she already made friends with most of the other Shevet Achim Gaza mothers, she was still worried about her beloved grandchild being in the hospital.

Today was a day full of tests to gather information about his complicated heart such as a CT scan and several blood tests. Yousif has Hypoplastic-Left-Heart-Syndrome which is a severe congenital heart defect. The doctors are acting fast so they can treat him as soon as possible.

Pray for adorable Yousif and his family who are really worried about him in this time.
