Co-worker Carina and I found Alaa back in Sheba hospital today. Firstly we saw his uncle out in the seating area, after recognizing each other, he politely ushered us to Alaa’s bay, and offered us tea, remembering our (strange) preference for no sugar.
Alaa also politely received us as visitors, and informed us that he has not been feeling well for quite a long time now, particularly mentioning the pain in his stomach. He was able to have a conversation but it does seem that he was in discomfort. His main treatment today according to the nurses is diuretic therapy.
They are both grateful for the opportunity to be able to return to the hospital here for treatment.
Please pray that Alaa’s situation will be resolved quickly.
