Growing and Eating

We visited Jude at Hadassah Hospital and found him happy and resting. His fever has passed, and he’s started drinking milk on his own, praise God! It’s drop-fed to him through a small plastic teat, and he drinks with such enthusiasm that it’s all gone within seconds. He’s up to 15 ml a day, with the amount being increased in steady increments as he grows stronger and capable of handling more.

If all continues well, and if he continues growing at this pace, he may have his surgery as early as next week–welcome relief for his mother, who’s eager to go home!

Sister Miriam and I prayed over Jude, and we marveled at how beautiful he is. He wasn’t quite sure what to make of us, but he was peaceful during our visit. Pray that he’ll continue growing healthy and strong!
