Asmaa had a wonderful check of her heart and lungs today, and the doctor has given his unofficial clearance to return to Kurdistan. The doctor wants to see Asmaa one last time prior to her departure to Kurdistan. She will have to have her blood levels checked frequently to make sure her blood levels are responding well to her medications.
In the car Asmaa was sharing how she misses Kurdistan and how she hopes to return soon when there are planes traveling to Kurdistan. It has been a blessing to see Asmaa flourish. She is becoming our sweet little sister, and is becoming more beautiful every day! Here is a photo of Asmaa and her grandmother celebrating the end of Ramadan, with Asmaa dressed in her traditional Kurdish dress:
