Interventional cath scheduled tomorrow

Akar’s mom greeted me and coworker Tabea outside the Sheba Children’s Hospital Pediatric ICU today. She had a smile and the news that Akar is again a bit better today!

The doctor told me they have decreased his support a bit more. Akar is still in critical condition, but it’s so good to hear these reports of improvement.

Later in the day, Akar’s oxygen levels dropped and the doctors decided he needs another interventional catheterization to dilate his pulmonary arteries.

While his sepsis and heart function are improving little by little, his lung function and ventilation are getting worse. He will have the cath tomorrow and the doctors hope it will fix the problem with his ventilation.

Please pray tomorrow’s catheterization will be successful, and Akar will continue to improve.
