I’ll soon be going home

We found Abed asleep in his chair this afternoon, still waving his little right hand back and forth as he dozed.

His mother is more anxious, as her other son Mohammed is hospitalized in Gaza and calling out for his mother. Tomorrow a portable ventilator will be delivered to Sheba hospital and Abed’s mother will be trained in its use. God willing by the end of the week Abed can be safely back in Gaza, the family’s unity restored after eight months in the hospital in Israel.
