Low oxygen levels

Amin had his first assessment today at Sheba hospital. His mother shared that he was born at the same time that his grandfather died, and therefore has been given the name Amin. She is a really lovely lady and cried a little at the start of the assessment process.

The most striking thing which today’s assessment indicated, was Amin’s extremely low oxygen level of around 65%. The doctor decided that it was by no means appropriate to send him back to our Jaffa house, so he was hospitalized in the pediatric ICU. His mother took this outcome steadily, wanting the best for her baby.

He is being monitored in the ICU. There are a few other Kurdish ladies there so this can hopefully be a nice comfort for Amin’s mother.
