Off the ECMO

It was a big step today for Mohammed, as he had surgery in which they disconnected him from the ECMO machine.  The surgery required around two hours. The waiting time was really quick compared to the long surgeries Mohammed has had before. We went outside for some time which was lovely, and even though circumstances with these children are often difficult, I enjoy spending the waiting time with the lovely mothers a lot; it helps us to get to know each other better. Mohammed was taken out of the surgery after around two hours, and his mother was very happy.

Mohammed has a pacemaker now. His doctor said he needs to have it probably for a few days because his heart is not working well yet on its own. His chest is still open, but he is stable. Please continue to pray for Mohammed’s precious little life and for his lovely mother.
