One step closer

Today, beautiful Mariya was discharged from Sheba hospital after a test for her kidneys this morning. The test results aren’t back yet, but she will have an appointment with the nephrologist within the next week or so to discuss her condition.

While waiting for her discharge report, Mariya got a special visit from Mizgeen, who played with her for quite some time while her mom and I talked. It’s good to see the relationships they’ve formed in their time together at the hospital.

Today’s discharge brings Mariya one step closer to going home to Kurdistan. Her mom is very hopeful that this will have been her last hospital stay in Israel. She will need follow up appointments with the nephrologist, urologist, and ENT doctor in the coming days and we pray she can go home to her dad and big sister after these checkups.
