More assessment

Shadi continues to have assessment before the doctors at Sheba hospital can plan the surgery for him.

Today it was a routine check-up for Shadi before undergoing surgery for his brain and kidneys. His mother told me there were concerns for his brain function previously in Kurdistan, after little Shadi experienced an episode in which he went very, very blue and his arms went stiff. She explained that she isn’t as concerned now as she was before, because she can see that he is responsive to many things which he can see and hear, he can make noises, hold things, he remembers things and recognizes when places and people are new.

Shadi did not enjoy the experience today of having the head ultrasound. His next test will be a CT scan, scheduled for Wednesday of this week.
