Mohammed had an MRI scan today at Sheba hospital, as part of his diagnostic process prior to surgery. The appointment took a lot longer than his mother was expecting, and she was very worried whilst waiting. Despite having an older child who required heart surgery here in Israel, of course she was no less worried for her precious son’s wellbeing.
Her mothers’ intuition was working well: the delay for Mohammed to exit the MRI scan was caused by a drop in his oxygen saturation levels. Thankfully, Mohammed recovered and stabilised enough to bring him back to his room in the ward, without the need for intubation and being taken to the intensive care unit. He was checked over thoroughly by many of the medical staff in his department upon arrival back there.
