Needing another surgery

Amin had a diagnostic catheterisation today at Sheba hospital. His mother took the day steadily, but of course was worried as she kissed him goodbye. One of the doctors described Amin’s condition today as “stuck.” He’s not really improving.

The doctor from the catheterisation said they were able to observe that the hole in Amin’s heart is of a significant size, and therefore requires another surgery. He answered her question, which has been “why is this hole only being seen now?”

He explained that the infection in Amin’s heart seems to have caused this hole to grow and grow. Today, with the catheterisation procedure, they were about to see the hole’s size, and check the significance.

Amin was transferred to the ICU for at least this evening, as he recovers from the procedure.
