Today Mohammed S had his first Echo assessment. Mohammed’s mother has a very calm and quiet personality, as well as Mohammed. The first day at the hospital for a new parent is a very decisive and important time. I try my best to explain to them where everything is and how things work at the hospital. It is a completely new experience for most of the parents, for some it is the first time they have ever been outside of their own countries. Mohammed´s mother was able to meet and spend special time with two of our Kurdish mothers who are also presently at the hospital with their children. Mohammed S was very calm during the Echo-cardiogram procedure.
The Cardiologist confirmed the diagnosis of Uni- cuspid Valve Stenosis. The Doctor said that maybe they can open the valve with a balloon procedure, but it could be dangerous and he said also that it is better to repair the valve or change it in surgery.They may have to replace the valve.
