Moved out of ICU

Meera’s father joined the two Kurdish mothers for the beginning of the surgery and catheterisation for their daughters. It is touching to see how these families are supporting each other during these hospital days. Meera is having a better day today and seems to have turned a corner. As the nurse said, “We have to ask Meera why she’s feeling better today.” It is very good to see her now extubated since this morning, and with her heart rhythm responding to medication and under control. We need to continue to watch and wait for Meera’s recovery. It was a big surgery, to place a BT shunt and PA plasty, and so her body is adjusting in her own time. The medical team predict another surgery in the future, but at the moment we are to focus on her recovery from this first stage, before considering when this might be.
