Long time no see

Today coworker Yukako and I visited our little Abed, who yestesday arrived via ambulance from Gaza to Sheba Medical Center in Israel.

Everyone in the hospital was so excited to see him and his mom! A bit ago, they spent ten months in the hospital for some heart surgeries and since Abed’s mom speaks English well, they borrowed her translation skills and really became friends with her and with Abed.

Our little boy is doing well and was discharged today! The doctors said that he has to keep the tracheostomy though because he has some pulmonary pressure.

We had some trouble finding an ambulance to take him back to Gaza today, so he will be staying at Sheba for one night more and hopefully will go home tomorrow.

Let us pray for Abed and for his health, for the Lord is good and powerful to heal him!
