New arrival Rahma

Little baby Rahma arrived today from Kurdistan, northern Iraq. She came with her mother and a nurse from Canada who traveled with them as a medical escort. Coworker Keyla and I were at the airport to find and greet them.

I drove Rahma, her mother and the attending nurse in our Shevet van directly from the airport to Sheba Medical Center where Rahma was promptly admitted.

Rahma needs surgery soon to switch her big arteries. For now at least she needs oxygen-support, as she experienced some low oxygen saturation on the flight here but recovered and is now stable.

Your prayers for this new arrival are appreciated.
