This morning we started off by praying for Asmaa and her grandmother. Asmaa dressed in a beautiful pink dress and was in a joyous spirit throughout the car ride to Sheba Medical Center.

Asmaa had a blood test today.  At this appointment, we inquired if she would be able to return home at this stage. Today’s blood test was better; she is moving toward her target blood range. The doctor, happy with today’s blood test result, said to come back again on Sunday for another exam.

We hope Asmaa and her Grandmother will be able to travel home to Kurdistan soon.  It has been a long and challenging journey for them.
