Hernia developments

On December 28th, Asmeen began expressing distress at her hernia for the first time since she arrived. We took her to Sheba Hospital that morning but the examining doctors were not concerned and simply suggested that we have her taken to a surgical clinic to consult about the hernia’s removal. We did so on January 1st.

At that time, it was found that the hernia removal will actually be a fairly expansive procedure which, the doctors expect, will take at least a couple of months to arrange and enact.

Please pray that we find a way to get it done more quickly so that she and her mother do not need to stay so long. Asmeen continues to experience periodic, though not intense, distress from her hernia and want to cover this in prayer also.
