This morning Riham had her first appointment at the hospital. It was an early appointment, so we had to leave the house at 7.00 am. Riham was still asleep when I had to picked her up from the cot. She was awake while driving. She was happy. Looking at Mom and smiling.
In the hospital they did the echo, ECG and saturation. Riham is malnourished. She is two years old but her weight is only 5.5 kg (12 pounds). She can’t sit or crawl yet. She is only fed by milk because her body seems not to cope with other food. Although we have to look into this, for now our first concern is the heart. Because there is also a stenosis, she will have a CT scan tomorrow. After that the operation will be planned. With lovely Kurdish children songs on the phone, Riham did very well during the examinations. Mom takes good care of her.
Please pray with us for this tiny little girl. May her body be strong enough for the big operation!
