Going home

When I saw little Rifan in her beaming mother’s arms today, I almost couldn’t believe this is the same tiny baby who was struggling to hang on to life just three weeks ago. What a long way she’s come– today, she was discharged from Sheba hospital to go home to Gaza.

Rifan’s mom was exuding joy all day. It’s been so lovely to get to know her during these last weeks and I’m so happy to see her going home with her beautiful daughter. We’ll see Rifan again in a month when she comes back for follow-up.
