Pacemaker decisions pending

Ahmed’s improvement is slowly progressing, but his heart isn’t working yet on its own. He is very dependent on the temporary pacemaker the doctors at Sheba Hospital placed last Tuesday.

If Ahmed’s heart doesn’t start to work on its own, doctors need to place a permanent pacemaker. They will watch his heart carefully in the next days.

When coworker Dorothee and I visited Ahmed and his mother today, he was very restless. Only his mother could calm him. She also suffers over her son’s situation.

Please pray that Ahmed’s heart starts working properly and that he and his mother have enough strength for the weeks ahead in hospital.
