Gashbin lands in Israel

Sweet nine-year old Gashbin (at far right) arrived in Israel today seeking healing for her complicated single-ventricle heart. She’s had two previous surgeries, and doctors will be studying the anatomy of her heart to see how to increase the flow of oxygen to her body. This will relieve her fatigue and allow her to continue her studies.

Diana was on hand at the airport and adds:

We want to welcome sweet and fragile Gashbin.  She and her Mom arrived very tired after they did not sleep all night. The waiting for them at the airport arrivals hall was long. Both new mothers were a little nervous but funny Julio spoke their own Kurdish language so they became more relaxed. We did the routine checkup at the airport, and thank God Gashbin’s vital signs and saturation were fine.
