The nurse coordinator and nurse for Zakaria gave us somewhat discouraging news when we visited there today. A special medication infusion was given to him yesterday, then an attempt was made to wean him off of the ECMO support. Unfortunately, his heart did not respond well, and he was quickly returned to full support. He remains in critical condition at this time. Fortunately, he has not suffered any serious complications from this support.
In the natural, this is quite concerning for Zakaria and his family. Please join with us in prayer for his healing, and comfort and peace for his family.
