Ready to go home

After visiting Wael and his mother on Tuesday and Wednesday, I came also today to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem for his discharge. The hospital discharged him without the CT scan, but still we had to wait for the discharge papers.

As on the other days it was fun for both of us. He already recognized me on the first visit after I brought him and his mother to the hospital and came towards me with open arms. I think these visits have been the best in my whole time at Shevet. We played with a ball and Wael was very exited to discover the hospital and walk around everywhere, even trying to open doors as you can see in the picture.

I’m so happy to be able to spend this time with him, because he’s so joyful and active. Especially when I think that I couldn’t see any difference on the day after his cath compared to the day before, I have to thank God.

So after getting the discharge papers, we left the hospital and drove back to Gaza. He slept the whole drive and after arriving at the Erez crossing, I could hold him in my arms for a last time to say good bye. Please pray for him, that his current health condition will hold on, PTL!
