One thing at a time

Ayan’s mother said today,

“When I was in Kurdistan, I asked God – please I need to go to Israel. When I was in Israel, I asked God – please Ayan needs to have surgery. When he had surgery, I prayed please God – let the ECMO help him. Now I pray please God -let him finish from the ECMO. Then after he recovers, please God – let me go to Jaffa, and then finally please God –┬álet us go to Kurdistan.”

I loved this. His mother’s has beautiful faith to ask this of a God she believes is involved in all of these details, overlooking nothing.

Today the doctors did a trial assessment in an echo, to see how Ayan’s heart functions when they bring down the support of the ECMO machine. While he is still not in a good condition, it is possible that soon he may be able to be taken off of the machine, though his situation is still extremely critical.

We can pray like his mother, for one thing at a time, and truly for the best for Ayan.
