Lungs showing improvement

Today at Sheba Hospital, Eva had another trial coming off the ECMO machine. Praise God they saw an improvement in her lung function! However due to slightly raised levels of fluid retained in her body (often found in children after heart surgery) they are keeping her on the ECMO.

The medical team have made adjustments to her medication to try and get rid of the excess fluid. Tomorrow they will again try taking her off ECMO and reassess the situation. Eva’s mother is pleased with this, but still longs to be able to stay in the room with Eva – during ECMO Eva is especially vulnerable to infection so staying in the room is not permitted.

We praise God for his preserving and healing in Eva and continue to pray that her body continues to strengthen and heal and that the excess fluid is gone.
