Ahmed returned for his follow-up echo. However, it was once again clear as soon as he arrived that he was in poor health, with a rattling cough, extreme weakness, and a slight yellowing of the skin. The doctors decided to hospitalize him and run tests on him over the next couple days, as his condition is potentially symptomatic of dangerous complications which need to be resolved before his upcoming surgery.
His mother fears for Ahmed. He was in a similar condition when he was last here over a month ago, and although he recovered well, she is understandably distraught over this recurrence. As for Ahmed’s part, Sheba is a frightful environment for him. He cries often, but without the strength to make much noise with it. Please pray for him and his mother–for healing, for encouragement, for endurance, and for good test results.
