Hard Times and Good Friends

For Reem life hasn’t been very easy these days. After already been moved to the secondary ICU, she is now back in first ICU due to a heart issue that has come back. No one really knows why it actually became worse again, and seeing Reem’s Mom today was heartbreaking. Being close to tears, she was fighting them back, being really strong when we visited her.

Also tonight our volunteer Alena visited them again, to encourage Mom and to spend some time together as friends. By then, Reem was intubated again, which was of course a sad occasion, but it was a joyful time with some coffee and good talks. And although nothing seems to be easy right now, Mom was “her usually amazing self”.
